I recently put together a way to calculate the price of a day of annual sunshine. I thought some people might be interested in finding just the sunniest places in America ranked by the cost of owning a home in those locations. Abilene is #1 and Texas dominates with 5 of the top 7 locations. California also has 5 cities in the top 25 but most of them are near the bottom due to high housing costs. Cities in Arizona (4), Colorado (3), Nevada (2), Florida (2), Louisiana (1), Oklahoma (1), New Mexico (1), and Hawaii (1) complete the list.
Here are the Top 25. Or, check out this map.
