Free SCE Webinar Series: Planning Your Home Electrification Project
Event Description

How can you make your home healthier, safer, more efficient, more comfortable and more resilient? This two-part class will equip homeowners to manage their own electrification project with a full understanding of why we need to electrify buildings, what systems are required, and how to avoid common pitfalls in the process.

The class is offered in an on-line format on two evenings, one week apart from 4:30-6:00 pm. The class will be followed up with a call-in session one month following the classes, so that participants can apply what they’ve learned and bring issues to the group and instructors for discussion.

At the conclusion of this class participants will have learned:

  • Why electrification will help save on utility bills
  • How electrification improves your home
  • How to assess whether your house is a good fit to go all-electric
  • How to evaluate the existing systems in your home
