Survey Says Kansans Support Renewable Energy Law

wind energy

A survey released today (THUR) claims Kansans overwhelmingly support the state's renewable energy standards. KPR’s Stephen Koranda reports.


The survey was commissioned by advocates for renewable energy. The 600 registered Kansas voters polled were a mix of Republicans, Democrats and independents, with nearly half identifying themselves as Republicans.

Of those polled, 75 percent said they support the Kansas renewable energy standards, which require utilities to generate 20 percent of their electricity from renewable sources by 2020. A majority also said they’d support increasing the renewable energy requirement in exchange for a small increase in their monthly bill.

Some lawmakers have argued for rolling back the standards, saying that the requirement will raise utility rates. They argue that renewable energy sources should not be given an advantage when competing with other sources of energy
