News from our friends at Solar Energy Industries Association:
“National polls have consistently shown that solar energy is widely supported by U.S. voters. For the fifth consecutive year, SEIA has worked with researchers to conduct a nation-wide survey of voters on their attitudes toward solar.
This year, the survey found that about nine out of ten Americans (92 percent) think that the United States should develop and use more solar energy. Voters also prefer solar specifically, with 85 percent of voters and 87 percent of swing voters supporting solar over all other sources of energy.
Support for solar is strong across the political spectrum as well, with 75 percent of Republicans,
89 percent of Independents, and 94 percent of Democrats agreeing that the United States should develop and use more solar.
The survey also found that nearly eight out of ten Americans (78 percent) feel that the federal government should incentivize solar development. Seven out of ten Americans feel that the federal government should be doing more to support solar.”
