Affordable Home Electrification: How the Bay Area Can Embrace Clean Appliances Without Hurting Our Pocketbooks

Digital Discourse


SPUR Public Programs: A city skyline showing a variety of older buildings

When the Bay Area Air District passed the nation’s first zero-emission standards for furnaces and water heaters, they laid down a marker. Within just a few years, the Bay Area will install clean electric appliances in place of polluting gas-burning equipment as their old appliances reach their end of life. How can policymakers make this transition affordable for homeowners, landlords, and renters? Hear from Peninsula Clean Energy, PG&E and SPUR about strategies to bring down costs, provide financial incentive programs, and keep electricity bills as low as possible.
