New Survey Reveals Majority of Valley Residents Want Clean, Local Electricity and Choice in Providers

August 24, 2016 – Clean Power Exchange, a program of the Center for Climate Protection, released new survey results about local and renewable energy. According to the survey, electric utility ratepayers in the San Joaquin Valley – from San Joaquin County to Tulare County – are interested in alternatives to the current energy system.

A majority of ratepayers want a choice regarding their electricity service, and they want electricity generated locally with revenues reinvested into the local economy. They also recognize the need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and believe that it is important that their electricity come from clean sources. A supermajority also indicates they are willing to pay something more for electricity generated from cleaner sources.
