Free Webinar: The Electrification Course for Homeowners, July 25
Event Description

In The Electrification Course for Homeowners, we debunk many of the myths that people believe regarding superiority of fossil fuels. Beyond that, we explore how converting from gas to electric appliances actually bring surprising benefits and can enhance a homeowner’s experience, home safety and energy independence.

Presented by Spencer Rosen through the San Diego Gas & Electric Training Center, this course also dives into a practical overview of the costs and cost savings associated with converting from gas appliances to electric appliances using The Electrification Calculator. It will also review the huge opportunity associated with switching from a gas vehicle to an electric vehicle and finally discuss the full benefits with electrification coming together when combined with solar electricity and energy storage.

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

- Summarize the basics of what a therm (natural gas) and a kWh (electricity) are and how to convert to more kWh
- Calculate the savings in fossil fuel costs associated with the process of electrification
- Establish best practices associated with converting from gas appliances to electric appliances
- Breakdown how to evaluate and optimize your main electrical panel for electrification
- Discover how sizing a solar energy and battery system changes when you consider electrification
