All-Electric Living
separator

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.

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.

Costs Savings

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.

How to go All-Electric?

It doesn’t matter if you’re retrofitting your existing home or business or building a new one, SVCE is helping make the switch to all-electric living easier.

Induction Cooking

Using the power of magnets, induction cooking can heat up a pot of water nearly twice as fast as gas or standard electric. More controllable than gas and easier to clean. Check out these induction cooking quick facts!

Heat Pump Space Heating & Cooling

A heat pump heating and cooling system takes heat from the surrounding area and moves it to another location. In the summer, that means it moves heat from inside your home to the outside and does the opposite in winter.

Heat Pump Water Heating

Heat Pump Water Heaters use less energy compared to natural gas water heaters. They are also designed to engage with additional energy and money saving options related to energy bills. Lean more about the SVCE rebate program.

EV Charging

Installing an EV charger in a garage or outside your home lets you charge your vehicle overnight for a worry-free morning commute.

Solar Panels + Battery Storage

Adding rooftop solar and battery storage lets you capture renewable energy and store it for use after the sun goes down. Check out the state’s incentive for battery storage with solar.

Building Something New?

The most cost-effective time to address building electrification and vehicle charging is when new buildings are being constructed, rather than paying more later to retrofit them. By planning ahead to go all-electric, you can save thousands by being EV-ready and not having to install gas infrastructure.

In fact, the construction and operating costs for new all-electric buildings are typically less than ‘mixed fuel’ buildings (those that use both electricity and natural gas). This win-win situation benefits developers and property owners.

To help influence change throughout our region, we’re partnering with local jurisdictions to get new building codes adopted that encourage all-electric building and greater access to EV charging.

Drive Clean. Drive Electric.

One of the best ways to reduce greenhouse gases is to buy an electric vehicle (EV). With incentives, an EV can cost less to purchase than a gas vehicle. Plus, fuel costs are half that of a gas-powered car and maintenance is less expensive.
And with SVCE investing millions of dollars for new charging stations in Silicon Valley over the next few years, fueling up will be easy. Check out our EV infrastructure plan for more information.
