Based on a recent poll of registered voters in Illinois, there is overwhelming support for increasing the use of renewable energy and energy efficiency in Illinois:
- More than 80% of voters support development of wind and solar energy
Nearly 100,000 workers in Illinois are employed in clean energy jobs. They are manufacturing wind and solar equipment; they are building and operating clean energy projects; and they are installing and upgrading energy efficiency systems that cut energy use and reduce electricity bills for Illinois families and businesses. That’s why:
• More than 68% believe renewable energy and energy efficiency stabilize or reduce energy costs.
Voters prioritize a clean energy future.
- 92% of voters support diverse energy sources rather than relying on just a few.
The survey was completed by a bipartisan research team of Fairbank, Maslin, Maullin, Metz & Associates (FM3) and Public Opinion Strategies. More info on this poll is available at ilenviro.org/cleanenergypoll.
