On behalf of Advanced Energy United, Cygnal, an international polling and public opinion firm, spoke with 800 likely voters from July 17-18 of 2023, finding widespread support for renewable energy across the state.
A majority of respondents wanted to see wind (60% support) and solar (70% support) in the state’s energy mix, and majorities in all regions of the state said they would be more likely to vote for candidates in 2024 who supported Indiana’s renewable energy development.
The poll also found 67% of Hoosiers, including a majority of Republicans, would favor legislation to create a required uniform standard for the zoning, permitting and location of renewable energy projects in the state, while over half of all respondents said they would support using state funds to create a financial incentive for local governments that voluntarily adhered to the state standard. Four-fifths of Hoosiers agreed Indiana should strive to provide consistent and clear regulations to help attract businesses and boost the economy.
