Popular support for wind in Denmark

Google Translate

Strong popular support for the Danish government's wind policies has gone unaltered in the past seven years. In an opinion poll by Sonar in June, 1258 citizens were asked whether Denmark should continue to build new wind turbines so that an increasing percentage of its electricity-currently around 17%-is generated from the wind. Just under 70% said yes, with positive responses revealing a majority of wind supporters across the spectrum of political parties. A similar Gallup poll in 1994 had almost the same result, with 68% declaring they were "willing to accept a higher electricity price if the utilities used more renewable energy to preserve the environment."
