Natural gas appliances can release carbon monoxide, formaldehyde and other pollutants into the air, which can be toxic to people and pets.
Switching to electricity, or electrification, reduces harmful emissions for healthier air quality in our homes, and a better environment for everyone. And energy-efficient appliances offer outstanding reliability and low operating costs.

Turn Off Natural Gas & Switch to Electric
Electrification means replacing technology that runs on fossil fuels with technology that runs on electricity.
As the grid’s power mix (a combination of electricity provided by PG&E and other energy suppliers) becomes cleaner due to increasing amounts of electricity, solar, and wind — our home and business appliances become cleaner, too.
Our buildings and transportation are two of the largest contributors to greenhouse gas emissions because of their reliance on fossil fuels. Collectively, we can move to a future that’s completely carbon-free. Every energy-efficient step forward is a big deal.
A heat pump water heater is clean, safe and all-electric.
It uses electricity and a refrigerant to take heat from the surrounding air and transfer it to the water in the tank.
Heat pumps provide highly efficient heating and cooling by moving heat in or out of your home
Replace your gas furnace or conventional air conditioning with a heat pump for energy savings and big rebates.
Induction cooking uses electromagnetism to heat pots and pans.
This results in faster cook times, less wasted heat and a safer, healthier kitchen.
Heat pump dryers recycle air through an evaporator to remove moisture without losing heat.
They use less electricity and are easy to install since they don't require ventilation.
