EN Webinar: Make Your Go Electric! Plan – Tools and resources to get you started

May 15 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm PDT

Electrify Now

Learn how to create an electrification plan to upgrade your home for greater energy efficiency, reduced costs, increased comfort and safety

We’ll show you how to develop a simple electrification plan tailored to your home’s unique needs, so you’re ready to take advantage of new rebates, tax credits, and other programs when it’s time to replace appliances with new high efficiency all-electric upgrades. An informed plan will help you electrify, whether you want to swap systems out as they fail or you’re ready to get off fossil fuels and improve your home’s performance right now.

Transitioning to safer, more efficient electric technologies is a process, not a single project. Whether you’re ready to make the switch now or planning for the future, join us to learn:

  • Why a home electrification plan will help you transition to a safer, more efficient home.
  • How to conduct a home inventory to assess your current systems.
  • How to get a professional energy audit and why that can be helpful.
  • How to avoid emergency appliance replacements that can lock you into high energy costs.
  • How to save money by thinking ahead on electrical upgrades and other measures.
  • How to find resources to help you make good decisions and learn about your options.
  • How to locate trusted and experienced contractors to do the work.

We will also review the Rewiring America Personal Home Electrification Planner – an online tool that walks you through the details of an electrification plan with estimated costs, energy savings and incentives personalized to your home.

Join us on May 15th and take the first step towards a greener, more energy-efficient home today!
