What is an electric home?

Electric homes have systematically removed gas powered appliances to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from the direct burning of fossil fuels (natural gas, propane, coal, or oil). Gas powered appliances are replaced with highly efficient electrical appliances that are either powered by a local electric utility service or by the installation of solar panels.

What are the primary gas fueled appliances in your home?

Why should you convert your home to 100% electric?

Electrification of buildings — switching from fossil fuels to electricity use for space heating, water heating, cooking, and clothes drying — represents an important strategy to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. In many cities across the U.S., the electricity mix is becoming clean and renewable. This means that using electricity to power our homes already reduces carbon emissions relative to direct-use of natural gas, and these carbon savings will increase over time as the grid become cleaner.
