Free Webinar: Electrify Efficiently: Electrification Opportunities for General Contractors & Architects, January 31
Event Description

Electrification is now the leading option for new buildings and major retrofit projects in California, and elsewhere as well. In Califorina, 70+ municipalities have policies to phase out gas appliances and the state aims to have 6 million heat pumps installed by 2030. This will require a major paradigm shift in the way builders, architects, and related professionals approach the market. It also presents a giant opportunity to frame yourself or your business as an electrification expert.

The objective of this course is that at the conclusion, participants will be able to:

- Summarize Electrify My Home's approach to 'good electrification'

- Explain the importance of comprehensive electrification planning

- List one reason why commissioning is important for HVAC systems

- Describe the benefit of keeping ductwork within the building enclosure
