A majority of registered voters in Oklahoma say they want their power utilities to invest more in renewable energy and are willing pay more for greater efficiency and choices, according to a poll released Thursday by the Sierra Club.

Response to wind-energy options already offered by the state’s top two utilities, however, indicate only a small percentage of customers so far are willing to pay more for them.

The poll, conducted by phone with 500 registered voters, indicated that 69 percent agree that the power companies should invest more in wind power, while 78 percent want expanded use of renewables sources such as solar and wind.

A combined 72 percent of those voters strongly or somewhat support energy efficiency programs which might raise bills in the short term but lower them over time, according to the poll.
