The continued use of fossil fuels is forcing us to pay the high cost of climate change. While some industries are making strides in sustainability, most buildings in California still burn natural gas, accounting for nearly 12% of the state’s greenhouse gas emissions. It makes sense, then, to fully electrify buildings, but what does that require? Learn about the impacts that building electrification can have on our health, economy and power grid and why it is imperative to act soon. Co-presented by APA Northern California.
