Results Positive for AWEA Wind Energy Survey

The American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) has announced the results of a national survey of the public opinion of wind energy. Conducted in March, the results conclude that there is generally a clear support for wind energy as well as public support for new projects. 

Highlights of the survey include the fact that 89% of respondents believe increasing the amount of energy the nation gets from wind is a good idea, while 67% believe Congress is not doing enough to increase renewable energy sources such as wind.

AWEA CEO Denise Bode said, “Wind works for America and that is why voters want Congress to pass a strong national RES.  Americans understand that an RES will mean new manufacturing jobs, less dependence on imported energy, and more pure, clean, affordable energy for our country.” 

This comes shortly after a recent report showed 160% global growth in the wind industry for the next five years.
