Solar, Wind, and State Mandates: 10 Years of Renewable Energy in the NSEE

Download the document.

This report considers how American attitudes about renewable energy policies—and solar and wind energy, more specifically—have changed over the last decade. We use time-series data to consider shifts in support for state-level renewable energy requirements and the extent to which Americans are willing to pay more for renewable energy. We also look at whether or not Americans support increased use of solar and wind energy outside of the context of state mandates, and their perceptions of the positive and negative impacts of these energy sources.
