Survey shows strong support for renewable energy, less pollution from power plants
The movement for clean, green energy is happening in the United States, and the latest piece of proof comes from a recent national survey conducted by Consumer Reports.
That survey of 1,200 Americans found that “81 percent of American adults agree that reducing pollution from power plants is a worthwhile goal, and 76 percent agree that increasing renewable sources of energy, such as solar and wind, is a worthwhile goal.”
If this data is extrapolated to the U.S. population as a whole, that means that 260 million Americans want less pollution from power companies, and nearly a quarter of a billion Americans believe that renewable energy is a good thing.
What’s also interesting is that the survey found that consumers have some level of dissatisfaction with the power companies they rely on to power their homes.
Only 33 percent said they trust their electric utility company to offer fair rates and service, and 48 percent said they don’t feel that electric utilities care about lowering costs for their customers.
So we have a strong majority of people interested in renewable energy, along with a number of people dissatisfied with their power company. Going solar with help from POWERHOME Solar never looked so good.
SOLAR PANEL BENEFITS: Our library of articles that help you learn about solar
Power rates for residential customers in the U.S. have risen nearly 70 percent since 2001, and as power companies’ costs for doing business continue to rise, those costs are often passed on to the consumer in the form of rate increases. Unlike fossil fuels, solar panels do not emit carbon dioxide, lowering your own carbon footprint and that of the world. Every solar panel that we install is a move toward energy independence from power companies that power themselves from dirtier sources including coal and natural gas.
You can join this energy revolution and start owning your power instead of continually renting your power by switching to solar energy. Electricity is the only utility you can own – you can’t own your cable or water or gas. That’s what makes solar so intriguing as a future investment on both financial and environmental levels.
With our innovative solar program, homeowners can go solar for $0 up-front cost, save money on their electric bills, and generate their own clean energy. The solar panels installed on your home are American-made and come with a 25-year warranty, with many panels expected to last well beyond that.
