The Switch is On
California has set a goal of becoming carbon-free and energy independent by 2045. Our homes and buildings here in Silicon Valley play a role in this statewide movement.
Silicon Valley Clean Energy is part of a statewide coalition to help advance the use of clean, electric technologies in homes and buildings. With buildings producing more than a quarter of all statewide carbon emissions, it’s clear that natural gas use in homes contributes to climate change. Switching to all-electric appliances is the smart choice for your home, health and for California.

Improve Your Indoor Air Quality
Save on Your Energy Bill
Choose electric appliances that are 3 – 5 times as efficient as their gas counterparts. Now that’s efficient.
Switch to electric appliances and avoid harmful air pollutants produced when burning gas or propane.
When you use less energy, you spend less on your energy bills. With efficient electric appliances, you can save on your monthly bills.
Help Protect the Environment
Ditching gas appliances lowers local pollution and carbon emissions that contribute to climate change. Your appliances make an impact.
Make Your Home More Energy Resilient
In a power outage, most modern gas appliances still require electricity to operate. An electric backup system can prepare your home to be energy resilient.
