Critical Commentary

The chart reflects responses to Question #48 from the Winter 2020 survey, which asked: “Is there an energy co-op in your area?” This was a check-all-that-apply question and there were 82 responses. The options for this question were as follows:

  • Yes, there is an energy co-op in my area; I am a member. 

  • Yes, there is an energy co-op in my area; I am not a member.

  • No, there is not an energy co-op in my area.

  • I don't know what an energy co-op is; I don't think there is an energy co-op in my area.

  • I don’t know; this is the first time I am hearing about energy co-ops.

  • I know what energy co-ops are; I don't know of any in my area. 

The most common response was “I don’t know; this is the first time I am hearing about energy co-ops”, with 33 individuals selecting this option, followed by “I don’t know what an energy co-op is; I don’t think there is an energy co-op in my area”, with 25 individuals selecting this option. Ten individuals selected “Yes, there is an energy co-op in my area; I am not a member”, nine individuals selected “No, there is not an energy co-op in my area”, and six individuals selected “I know what energy co-ops are; I don’t know of any in my area”. Zero individuals selected “Yes, there is an energy co-op in my area; I am a member”. It’s important to note that some individuals selected multiple options in their response. 

The data was produced by the Shifting Energy Demands in COVID-19 Survey - Overview, which was administered to 83 people over a fourteen week period between December 2020 and March 2021.
