Americans Want More Emphasis on Renewable Energy

Two in three Americans want the U.S. to put more emphasis on producing domestic energy using solar (76%), wind (71%), and natural gas (65%). The least favored energy production method included oil (46%), nuclear power (37%), and coal (31%).

The Gallup poll asked participants whether the U.S. should put more, less, or about the same emphasis as it does now on producing domestic energy from the sources listed.

“While Americans’ lives make a difference in their views about which sources of domestic energy they want the U.S. to emphasize more, the top choice was solar power.”

Though there is a great opportunity to accelerate the economic growth of renewable energy, there is no consensus among Americans about how to optimize domestic energy production while preserving the environment.
