EMPOWERED Solutions Webinar: Residential Building Electrification Pathways

February 21 | 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m. PT / 2-3:30 p.m. ET

Across the country, there is a move toward building electrification: replacing appliances that use other fuels with electricity. Learn about the trends in retrofitting we are most likely to see in the coming years that move the U.S. toward an electrified future that can be powered with clean energy. Join our diverse panelists from across the country to discuss:

  • Common things that building owners and code officials may notice (based on code cycle and location) and how to resolve them
  • Pathways toward 100% electrification – it doesn’t have to happen all at once!
  • The role heat pump space and water heating technology plays in the transition
  • Tools and training for help code officials, homeowners, and policy makers better understand the transition
  • SolSmart program available to help communities improve permitting and inspection processes to support electrification with solar power
