This paper presents the results of a survey in the Region of Murcia in 2009 focused on the perceptions, attitudes and commitment of the issue of global warming and the use of energy from renewable sources to mitigate Climate Change. Within the overall goal, in this paper we analyze the willingness to pay for increasing the electric bill because of green electricity, using the contingent valuation method. Over 90% of respondents participating in the market would be willing to contribute additional payment to increase renewable sources. They are willingness to pay 16.4 € more per month, which represents an increase of 27% in the electric bill. Note the high percentage of respondents (33%) who refuse to participate in the market (protest responses), who argue that green energy should be funded directly by public funds.
