Sierra Club Webinar: Fight Climate Change by Electrifying Your Home

January 14, 2021 - 7:00 pm to 9:30 pm

Our ongoing dependency on fossil fuels for everyday living is a major contributor to carbon-induced climate change. To supply sustainable energy experts agree that two transitions must occur simultaneously, both of which are already underway: First, supply the electrical grid using cheaper, cleaner renewable solar and wind energy from distributed sources. Second, switch housing, transportation, and other energy intensive sectors from fossil fuel to clean electricity.

This webinar will focus on electrification of domestic housing. Connecticut residents will demonstrate how they converted oil or gas components like furnaces, hot water heaters, or gas stoves to new, more efficient electrical versions. Alternatively, we will demonstrate how older generations of electrical equipment, such as clothes dryers or solar panels, can be upgraded to more efficient technology to better interoperate with the distributed grid.

A panel discussion will follow at the end of this series, consisting of the presenters as well as selected industry experts.
