Highlights

  • The proportion of respondents who said utilities should place a high priority on climate change (44.3%) was similar to the proportion who said utilities should place a high priority on investing in renewable energy sources (41.0%).
  • More females than males said a high priority should be placed on climate change (49.8% versus 38.5%), as well as more females than males said a high priority should be placed on investing in renewables (43.6% versus 38.2%).
  • A review of findings from March to November 2021 revealed the third month in a row that high priority about climate change has declined (from a high of 53.8% in August to 44.3% in November). The region with the most respondents saying a high priority for climate change should be placed by utilities has shifted from the west in October to the northeast in November. Those saying a high priority should be placed by utilities on investing in renewable energy declined from 46.9% in October to 41.0% in November, but still stayed in the forty-percentile range (as seen over all nine months).
