To lower greenhouse gas emissions we need to stop burning fossil fuels, not only in cars and power plants, but also in homes and businesses.  Switching to using all electric appliances is a great way to do this, particularly as grid electricity gets cleaner and cleaner.  This movement toward “electrification” is growing rapidly, and our speakers will cover relevant new laws and policies and give details on programs being implemented around the Bay Area.  Come join the discussion about heat pumps, induction cooking, PV + EV + batteries systems, and the challenges of implementing such a major shift in energy usage.


Speakers: Rachel Golden, Sierra Club and Rachel Kuykendall, Sonoma Clean Power
