Pa. poll: another big win for wind

Pa. poll: another big win for wind

Still another public opinion poll, this time in Pennsylvania, has found remarkably strong public support for wind energy.  The numbers, as usual are very strong (85% of voters think it is important for Pennsylvania to support continued expansion of wind farms, 71% want the U.S. Congress to support a Renewable Electricity Standard (RES) of fifteen percent by 2021, 58% said paying $2 more per month on their utility bills would have no impact on their support for clean energy).

It’s great to see that after a quarter-century of public opinion surveys on energy, people still understand that a clean energy source that is inexhaustible and free from fuel price risks should be part of a common-sense energy policy.
