The future is electric – come join us.
Silicon Valley Clean Energy was created by the community and for the community. We’re committed to providing our customers with carbon-free electricity, creating a healthier environment and combating climate change. That’s the goal of an all-electric lifestyle – to make changes at home and work to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions and create a cleaner, greener Silicon Valley.
By working together with our local communities, we can meet greenhouse gas reduction goals of 50% by 2030.
Meet the FutureFit Home
Simply put, all-electric living is making the switch from gas to electric – at home, at work and on the road. Homes and businesses in our area already are powered by carbon-free electricity thanks to our clean energy options, so going all-electric allows you to truly live a carbon-free lifestyle.
An all-electric FutureFit home is more efficient, comfortable and safe. Appliances run exclusively on clean electricity from sources such as solar, wind and hydropower – rather than fossil fuels that harm indoor air quality and pollute the environment. This FutureFit graphic above highlights some of the features found in a FutureFit home.
To see how SVCE customers have embraced the FutureFit home, take a look at our All-Electric Showcase Award winners with some examples below!
Why go all-electric?
Going all-electric means you’re taking a stand against climate change and are committed to improving our community. Did you know one-third of our area’s greenhouse gas emissions come from the use of natural gas for space and water heating in our homes and businesses? Another 50% come from our gas or diesel vehicles.
Improved Air Quality
If we stop burning fossil fuels for transportation and buildings, we will reduce pollutants that cause smog and poor air quality.
High-efficiency electric appliances, like heat pump water heaters, can lower your utility bills. For new construction, not installing gas infrastructure can save thousands for new homes and even more for larger buildings.
Better Public Health
Avoiding the use of natural gas and gas-powered vehicles prevents the release of carbon monoxide, nitrogen dioxide and other harmful emissions, which are toxic to people and pets and can cause serious health issues.
