84% of Massachusetts Residents Want the Freedom to Choose Clean Energy/RNN

Public support and public outcry for change can move mountains.  That is exactly what we need to combat the worse affects of climate change.  Here we see the Sate of MA garnering citizen support for clean energy.

Not a surprise, then, that MA has one of the best clean energy plans in the country, and is getting flooded with investment dollars in renewable projects.  And the good news for those investors--the returns are great.

A new poll shows that Massachusetts residents overwhelmingly want to be able to choose their energy supplier, choose clean energy, and want more renewable energy in the Massachusettspower system. The poll commissioned by CleanChoice Energy, a renewable energy company providing 100% clean electricity, was conducted by SurveyUSA. SurveyUSA interviewed 550 Massachusetts adults who rent or own their home, pay their utility bills, and have at least some input on the household choice of their utility company. Support for clean energy choice cut across the typical partisan divide with both Republicans and Democrats overwhelmingly agreeing that they want to be able to choose clean energy. To date, CleanChoice Energy has helped Bay Staters reduce air and carbon pollution by 142 million pounds by switching to 100% renewable energy.
Highlights from the new survey:
  • 84% of Massachusetts residents want to be able to choose clean, renewable energy as a source for their home.
  • 83% of Bay Staters want to be able to choose who provides their electricity.
  • 74% of Massachusetts residents would be interested in 100% of their electricity being renewable energy if provided the option.
  • 81% of residents want the right to choose an alternative provider even if their city or town has selected a provider through a municipal aggregation program.
  • Bay State residents overwhelmingly support the Renewable Energy Service Company (RESCO) model for clean energy delivery (77%), more than rooftop solar (48%) and other home efficiency products and smart thermostats (68%)....
