Opinion polls continue to consistently indicate strong public support for renewable energy in France. A government sponsored survey reveals that 54% of French people are willing to pay more for green electricity, though the majority say this is only if the increase is under 5%. A poll commissioned by government energy agency ADEME last year showed that 98% of respondents were in favour of renewables, 76% would accept a wind farm in the region and 62% would accept a small project built one kilometre or more from their home.
