The data and graphics in this report are from Zpryme’s monthly and quarterly consumer benchmarking surveys. Data is based upon a nationally representative survey sample of 1,000 U.S. adults (margin of error: +/- 3.5%).


  • Nearly half of the entire sample (45.6%) believed that their utility should place a high priority on climate change. Females were stronger (50.4%) than males (40.6%) in this belief about placing a high priority. Those in the Northeast had the highest number (55.3%) saying climate change should be a high priority for their utility.
  • The largest group of respondents (45.5%) said their utility should place a high priority on investing in clean energy programs (wind, solar, EVs, etc.). Northeast residents were most strident (59.2%) in reporting that high priority should be placed on clean energy programs. Younger people, 35-44 and 18-24, had more people saying high priority should be placed on clean energy programs by their utilities (51.9% and 50.5%, respectively).
