According to Evolution Solar Corporation (EVSO), a recent Rasmussen Reports national phone survey finds firm support for solar power in the US. The survey found that many Americans are supportive of solar power and that they are at least somewhat likely to consider an investment for their own home.
The press release from Evolution Solar Corporation states that, “according to the survey 44% of Americans believe solar energy should become a standard method for heating homes in the US, compared to 23% who disagree and 33% who weren’t sure. Also in the poll 31% indicated that they are “at least somewhat likely” to make solar investments in their homes in the next five years, while 13% called themselves ‘very likely’ to do so. Those in the 18 to 40 age group were said to be most likely to believe that solar will become a widespread home heating source in the U.S.”
“It’s nice to see evidence that American support is trending upward for solar energy,” said Robert Hines, President of EVSO. “We have believed this was true but the new survey provides credible proof of the positive trend among the American people.”
