Vanessa Shin, Community Outreach Specialist for Peninsula Clean Energy, and Friday Apaliski, Director of Communications for the Building Decarbonization Coalition, will discuss what electrification entails, why it’s important and how you can save money with rebates and incentives. Switching to an all-electric home can improve your indoor air quality, cut climate and air pollution, and help ensure your community is more resilient to the impacts of climate change.
