Creating a Low Carbon Future for California Communities: Benefits of Electrification and How To Get There
Wednesday, March 22, 2023

CPUC Energy Division staff will explain how California is leading the way in decarbonizing our communities, discussing current and upcoming programs and policies, including some from other state agencies. Invited speakers will share information on the benefits of building electrification in California communities and local governments, the health and cost benefits for residents, and how to get started on the path to decarbonizing your own community. Speakers will also share information regarding financing options for residents looking to electrify their homes. Finally, a cooking demonstration will be geared towards busting myths regarding cooking with induction stoves.
