The Electric Future campaign is pushing New Haven towards having 100 percent of its buildings, vehicles, and appliances powered by electricity, rather than the natural gas and gasoline that many of them currently run on. To truly decarbonize, we must power everything using clean energy, and electrification is a necessary step in that process. Additional benefits of electrification include long-term savings on energy bills and public health benefits from improved air quality. Check out our proposal here.
