Poll: Most Ohio voters support renewable energy development


By Connor Smithee

A new George Mason University poll shows that most voters in Ohio support renewable energy development.

Registered voters in that state were asked by the university’s Center for Climate Change Communication what is the most important strategy to address Ohio’s energy needs.

Of those who answered, 63% said it was more sources of renewable energy. Another 13% said it was development of natural gas power plants.

Only 7% said that the development of nuclear energy is the most important priority. A majority (54%) opposed Ohio House Bill 6, which would subsidize two new nuclear and two new coal power plants with a monthly surcharge on electric bills.
