A new study by researchers at the University of Washington has found that most Americans would use renewable energy at home if given the option.
University of Washington study finds majority of Americans prefer renewable energy

The study was published by the journal Energy Policy. Those surveyed by the project indicating a preference for renewables said they would shift electricity use to cut fossil fuel consumption and carbon emissions regardless of political affiliation, age or gender.

The findings will be used to develop an app enabling users to monitor the source of their electricity in real time and help them to use more renewable sources.

“Americans have once again overwhelmingly shown their support for renewable energy” said Chad Tudenggongbu, senior renewable energy campaigner at the Centre for Biological Diversity. “This study adds to the growing evidence that we can and must rapidly shift away from dirty fossil fuels to a society powered by wind and solar. Reducing dependence on fossil fuels saves customers money and protects the planet. And utility customers will shift their behaviour to use more wind and solar when they’re given the right tools to do that. We all want to fight the disastrous effects of climate change, regardless of political party.”
