  • Changing home and commercial building appliances from ones that use non-electric fuel sources (such as gas) to ones that use electricity as a fuel source is called electrification.
  • Electrification reduces greenhouse gases (GHGs). It helps our state reach its GHG reduction goals.
  • With energy efficiency, electrification can provide greater comfort. It can also provide lower costs and better air quality.

Advancement of electric appliances


Advancement of Appliances

Today natural gas is used in many homes and commercial buildings to heat and cool air, heat water, dry clothes and cook. Gas appliances have been shown to produce unhealthy particulate matter. This worsens both indoor and outdoor air quality. Through some truly revolutionary technology there are now modern electric appliances that run efficiently and comfortably on clean electric power.
