Everyone Love Solar
John Rogers at UCS provides a short summary of a new survey that shows that everyone (well almost everyone) loves solar. Which makes it all the more confusing why the Massachusetts House has not yet moved the bill to lift the caps on solar net metering (H.4577) to the floor for a vote.
The survey, from the Pew Research Center, had a lot of fascinating findings about the surprisingly high levels of agreement among Americans on a range of environmental issues, with strong majorities saying that the federal government is doing too little on water quality, air quality, and climate change.
What really caught my eye, though, were the pieces specifically dealing with energy. The numbers on public support for expanding different energy sources, in particular, are stunning (figure 1).
