Poll: Kansans willing to pay to generate more renewable energy

A poll released this week by the Climate and Energy Project showed three out of four Kansans would be willing to pay between $2 to $5 more every month on their energy bill if it means generating more renewable energy.

So what do you think? Is that an accurate reflection of the state’s thinking?

Other highlights of the poll:

- Kansans believe by a three to one margin that it’s better to use renewable energy over nuclear and coal power.

- Nearly nine of 10 Kansans believe renewable energy is a path to stronger national security.

- Eight of 10 respondents agree investing in renewable energy will create more jobs.

The polling was conducted April 26-29, surveyed 600 registered voters selected randomly throughout the state and had a 4 percent margin of error. The polling was done by Ayres, McHenry and Associates.
