Why does electrification matter?

Scientists agree we need to cut our heat-trapping emissions to zero by 2050 to avoid the worst effects of climate change. Collectively, our monthly bills for electricity, natural gas, and gasoline add up to BILLIONS of dollars every year spent on fossil fuels. Through a combined effort to clean up our electricity generation and eliminating the burning of fossil fuels within residential homes, we can drastically improve our outlook. Small, everyday choices from each individual can add up to have a massive impact. We’re here to help make some of those choices easier.
