When people think of the phrase “disruptive technologies,” one of the first things that might pop into their heads is a Silicon Valley start-up. But right now, perhaps the most interesting market disruption we are witnessing is in energy, as old ways of powering our economy give way to advanced technologies.

And as we found when compiling Next 10’s 2016 California Green Innovation Index, which presents fresh economic data from 26 metro regions, clean energy leadership can be found across California — not just in traditional innovation hotspots.

Fresno is the state’s top region for industrial solar power, according to a report from a San Francisco nonprofit.

The amount of solar on Fresno-area warehouses and distribution centers – 11,132 kilowatts – is larger than the amount installed in the Silicon Valley and the greater Los Angeles areas combined, the 2016 California Green Innovation Index said.

California is easily the top state in the country in developing its clean-energy industry, leading all other states in solar energy production, electric and plug-in hybrid vehicle sales and the number of clean-energy patents issued, according to the eighth annual California Green Innovation Index report released Wednesday by San Francisco-based think tank Next 10.

That wasn’t much of a surprise, though the state’s clear dominance was indeed striking.

Us Inland residents may still have California’s longest drive times to work, but now no one can accuse us of not doing our part to reduce carbon emissions.

A report by San Francisco-based Next 10 found that the Riverside, San Bernardino and Ontario metropolitan area leads the Golden State in residential and commercial solar installations – with enough panels up to serve 38,500 homes – and is among the state leaders in receiving rebates for zero-emission vehicles, such as all-electric cars.

Solar power adoption and a high number of zero-emission vehicles get part of the credit

California's green technology industry continues to perform well when measured against the rest of the U.S.

The state is also doing well on some metrics when compared to the world's top industrial nations.

The Green Innovation Index tracks emissions, energy, innovation and economics.
