By a four-to-one margin, an overwhelming majority of Americans support the use of federal loan guarantees to encourage investment in the clean energy technologies identified by President Obama in his recent State of the Union address, according to a new survey sponsored by the Nuclear Energy Institute (NEI).

A total of 79% of respondents agreed with the following statement: ‘To jump-start investment and maintain U.S. competitiveness, the federal government should provide guarantees backing loans for building solar, wind, advanced-design nuclear power plants or other energy technology that reduces greenhouse gases.’ Nineteen percent of those surveyed stated they did not agree, and 2% stated they did not know.
