Posted: Friday, March 14, 2008 12:00 am

A majority of Intermountain Rural Electric Association customers polled have spoken against rebates, subsidies and energy taxes proposed to require power companies to fund portions of alternative energy initiatives and conservation.

Rebates offered to customers who installed solar energy systems were opposed by 65 percent of survey respondents. The taxation of carbon emissions from burning fossil fuels was opposed by 85 percent. An energy conservation bill requiring 2 percent of growth to be invested in energy conservation and a proposal requiring power companies to buy back electricity generated by consumers was opposed by 78 percent.
