dc.description.abstractThis research on the acceptance of waste power plants among communities in Nakhon Si Thammarat Province aims to: 1) study the level of acceptance of a waste-to-energy power plant in communities in Nakhon Si Thammarat Province, 2) identify factors affecting the acceptance of a waste-to-energy power plant in communities within Nakhon Si Thammarat Province, and 3) suggest guidelines for building acceptance for a waste-to-energy power plant amongst communities in Nakhon Si Thammarat Province. The study sample consisted of individuals residing in eight areas within a 3-kilometer radius of the construction site of a community waste-to-energy power plant in Muang District, Nakhon Si Thammarat Province, including Na Khian Sub-district, Na Sai Sub-district, Pak Phun Sub-district, Tha Sak Sub-district, Pak Nakhon Sub-district, Pho Sadet Sub-district, Klang Sub-district, and Tha Wang Sub-district. The Yamane formula was used to select a sample of 398 people, and data were collected using a questionnaire. Statistical package programs were utilized to analyze mean, frequency, standard deviation, and multi-collinearity. The results showed that: The majority of the sample were females with an average age of 39.58 years, residing mainly in Pho Sadet Sub-district, working as general contractors, with a monthly income ranging between 5,001-10,000 baht, and possessing a junior high school/vocational certificate. They were neither leaders nor members of any village groups, and lived in detached houses. The overall level of acceptance of the waste-to-energy power plant in the communities of Nakhon Si Thammarat Province was found to be at a “moderate” level. Individual factors in aspects of people’s perceptions of news, and people’s knowledge and understanding; and social factors in aspects of the ability to communicate by community leaders, and community leaders’ ability to motivate and affect the level of acceptance of a waste-to-energy power plant in communities in Nakhon Si Thammarat Province with a statistical significance of 0.001. On the other hand, impact factors in the aspect of concerns about change in the community can affect the level of acceptance of a waste-to-energy power plant in those communities in Nakhon Si Thammarat Province with a statistical significance of 0.01. To promote the acceptance of the community waste-to-energy power plant, Nakhon Si Thammarat Province and relevant agencies should implement the following recommendations: 1) For individual factors, public relations and news releases should be increased by providing more opportunities for public participation to make people feel a sense of ownership or involvement in the process. This will enable them to understand the operational processes and performance of the power plant better. As people have confidence in the community waste-to-energy power plant and have basic knowledge and understanding, they will be more likely to accept the power plant. 2) For social factors, communication and education for community leaders should be prioritized. News releases about the power plant should be followed up with these leaders, as they are essential intermediaries between the public and government agencies. 3) For impact factors, the operations, maintenance, and environmental and other impacts of the power plant should be regularly reported. This information should be shared with the public every 6 months or every year to build confidence that the community waste-to-energy power plant will not have negative effects on the community’s economy, environment, health, and well-being.th
