Many homes already use electric appliances for cooking, heating, hot water, clothes drying and more. These uses of electricity offer superior efficiency, better precision, more comfort, and health benefits at the same or lower cost as gas appliances.
So while electricity generation grows cleaner every day, switching to electric is better for the climate too.
Our largest carbon emissions come from our gas cars (50%), home heating (25%) and water heating (10%). With clean electricity and electrification of buildings & vehicles, together we could eliminate 80% of US energy-related emissions!
