Electricity is the safe, healthy, and clean alternative to methane gas
You are already receiving energy that is at least 50% renewable and 100% clean from Peninsula Clean Energy. But are you still burning gas in your house? Electric, energy-efficient choices such as induction cooktops, heat pump water heaters, and heat pump heating/air conditioning will improve the air quality inside your home and protect your family from gas leaks and the hazards of combustion. And because home carbon emissions are a large contributor to the climate crisis, switching from gas to clean electricity is important for the health of our environment as it is for your family.
To make the switch from gas to electricity easier, we offer thousands of dollars in rebates and up to $10,000 in zero interest loans.

Heat pump water heater (HPWH)
At least 60% of home methane use is to heat water. Heat pump water heaters are clean, safe, all-electric, and at least 3x more efficient than gas water heaters.
Heating, cooling, & air conditioning (HVAC)
Replace your gas furnace with a heat pump. Heat pumps are all-electric, clean, safe, at least 3x more efficient than gas furnaces and the same system also provides air conditioning.
- Heat pumps can integrate with your central, ducted system.
- For rooms that do not have central air, a mini-split or ductless system with a wall-mounted unit can heat and cool.
Electric induction stoves heat up food faster, have fine-tuned controls that are just as responsive as methane gas stoves, and are much safer and easier to keep clean. Don’t confuse these with old-fashioned electric coil stoves!
Energy-efficient electric dryers can replace your gas clothes dryer. Some use heat pump technology and can reduce energy use by 28% compared to standard clothes dryers.
Electric vehicle (EV)
Electric vehicles cost a lot less to run and maintain than gas-powered cars and emit 1/25 the amount of greenhouse gases.
You can charge your electric vehicle from a standard electrical outlet to add about 40-50 miles of charge overnight. Or install higher capacity chargers.
Solar + battery backup
With a solar photovoltaic + battery backup system you can reduce your energy costs and power your home when the electricity grid is down.
