Colorado Homeowner Preferences on Energy and Environmental Policy

Publication Type:
Special Report

Published / Updated:

Colorado homeowners follow national trends in preferring renewable energy over conventional energy sources. An extensive survey showed residents would most frequently select photovoltaic, wind and passive solar energy. Other highlights from the survey include:

  • Water and air pollution are perceived as the most important environmental problems
  • Environmental problems are viewed as somewhat energy-related
  • Solar and wind power are viewed as the least environmentally threatening sources of electricity; nuclear and coal are viewed as the most threatening
  • Among renewables, photovoltaic and wind power are seen as the best sources for meeting energy needs
  • Homeowners prefer to see the costs of developing renewables shared broadly, either through federal subsidies of electricity generation from renewables or modest increases in rates

Colorado homeowner preferences mirror those expressed in national polls, and trends will reflect these preferences, as well.
