SPUR Comments to the Bay Area Air District on Reducing Costs to Install Clean Appliances

Advocacy Letter

The Air District has been hearing understandable concerns regarding electrical service and panel upsizing. SPUR has been conducting in-depth research on how to address the challenge of electrical service upsizing, including electrical panel upsizing, during the transition to clean appliances. Electrical service upsizing is acting as a barrier to the uptake of clean appliances, but an underappreciated solution for many homes is to avoid service upsizing with careful design choices and the use of load management devices.
