  • Over half (48.1%) said utilities should place a high priority on investing in renewable energy with the west, again, having the biggest percentage (57.6%) saying high priority.
  • A review of findings from March 2021 to May 2022 revealed that the May 2022 percentage of high priority for climate change (49.9%) was the highest observed for the past eight months, with the western region having the most saying high priority for 11 of the past 15 months. The percentage saying a high priority should be placed by utilities on renewable energy investing was the 2nd highest recorded (48.1%) over the past 15 months of data reporting. In 12 of 15 months, the west had the largest group of respondents who said a high priority for renewable energy investing.
