The chart reflects responses to Question #49B from the Winter 2020 survey, which asked: “If no to Q49, “Why not?” This question was not on the Spring 2020 survey. This was an open-ended question, and there were three responses. One individual explained that they do not use much energy in their home so they don’t believe it should be a right, another individual explained that if energy were free too many people would use it, making it unaffordable for the government to purchase, and the last individual said “I don’t know”.
The data was produced by the Shifting Energy Demands in COVID-19 Survey, which has been administered to 169 people over two time periods. The Spring 2020 survey was administered to 86 people between May and June, and the Winter 2020 survey was administered to 83 people between December 2020 and March 2021. Visit the Shifting Energy Demands in COVID-19 - Spring + Winter 2020 Survey Results page to view more data from our survey. The project is approved by Drexel’s IRB.
