A new poll finds overwhelming public support for renewable energy in Indiana.

"It is exciting to see the overwhelming support for renewable energy in Indiana," says American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) CEO Denise Bode. "Indiana will benefit from these new wind farms, and it is also one of the states that stands to benefit the most from new manufacturing jobs in the wind turbine supply chain. As wind power expands in the country, Indiana could become a hub for the manufacturing of some of the 8,000 components that make up a modern wind turbine.

The survey, conducted by Garin Hart Yang Research Group and released by AWEA, found that four-fifths (81%) of Indiana voters favor a renewable portfolio standard that would require electric utility companies across the nation to generate at least 15% of their electricity from renewable energy sources by 2021, while just 13% are opposed.
