Electrify Your Home and Live More Sustainably

Electrifying your home by replacing gas appliances with efficient electric alternatives helps you save energy and improve safety and comfort.

Why electrify?


Save energy and money

Electric appliances are more efficient than gas appliances. They use less energy to produce the same heat or hot water, potentially lowering energy bills.


Improve indoor and outdoor air quality

Gas appliances produce pollutants that can contaminate indoor air, including carbon monoxide, nitrogen dioxide, and particulate matter. Electric appliances do not produce these pollutants.


Increase safety and give your family peace of mind

Electric appliances reduce or eliminate the risk of gas leaks, fires, and explosions.

What can I electrify in my home?

We offer several rebates to help you switch to electric appliances and save money.

Induction Cooktop $200

Induction and electric stoves make your home safer for you and your family by avoiding combustion and significantly reducing air pollutants.

Induction cooktops heat pots and pans directly, so there is no wasted energy heating up the surrounding air.
