California is getting cleaner while also growing its economy dramatically, according to findings in a new study.

The eighth annual California Green Innovation Index shows the state has grown its economy, as measured by gross domestic product, while being less carbon intensive.

​California installed 3,266 megawatts of new photovoltaic solar arrays in 2015, more than any other state.

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.

The reason why California faces a housing affordability crisis is simple, many experts say: Lots of people want to live in the state and there aren’t enough houses for them.

“You don’t need a PhD in economics to understand this,” said Christopher Thornberg, an economist who recently published a report on state housing costs with the nonpartisan organization Next 10. “It’s basic supply and demand.”

Three new studies commissioned by Next 10 — a San Francisco think tank that focuses on quality of life in California — make a powerful case that extreme housing costs threaten to make much of the state like Malibu and Santa Barbara, where only the wealthy can afford to live and most of the workers who support them have long commutes from cheaper inland areas. The analyses — prepared by Beacon Economics, a respected Los Angeles-based consultant — make a powerful case that the focus of state anti-poverty efforts should be bringing down housing costs.
