List of cities with the most energy-efficient buildings shows “dramatic” growth, with 6,200 buildings certified in 2010, according to federal environment officials.

Los Angeles leads the way with 510 Energy Star labeled buildings, that, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, save a total of $118 million in energy costs and cut electrical usage equivalent to almost 40,000 homes.

Washington, D.C. displaced San Francisco as the city with the second most-efficient building stock, with 301 buildings.

All told, more than 6,200 commercial buildings earned the Energy Star label in 2010, an increase of nearly 60 percent compared to 2009, according to the agency.
