All-electric homes

The switch is on from fossil fuels to carbon-free energy

The modern, all-electric home is more comfortable, energy efficient and healthier for your family and the planet. By using highly efficient electric appliances for heating and cooling air, heating water, drying clothes and cooking, you won’t be combusting methane gas in the home. Instead, as a Peninsula Clean Energy customer, you’ll be using 100% carbon-free electricity.
