Home Electrification Fair

2:00 – 5:00 PM
The Brower Center
2150 Allston Way, Berkeley
There are plenty of good reasons to switch from gas to electric:
Health. Safety. Longterm savings. And of course, climate.
And there are a lot of good questions:
• Where do I start? Oven? EV charger? Heat pump?
• Do I need to upgrade my electrical panel?
• How do I find contractors I can trust?
• What rebates and tax credits are available?
Our three presenters will provide homeowners, renters and landlords with answer to those questions and more:
Electrification 101 – 2:30
Eric Morrill, co-founder of All Electric California, will lay out options for replacing gas or inefficient electric items in your home with energy-saving alternatives. Eric will also provide tips for reducing electrical loads and tell us how to estimate if a service upgrade is necessary.
Financial Incentives – 3:15
Chris Hunter of BayREN will tell us what is a healthy home, offer energy-saving tips for renters. He will discuss the range of rebates for everything from insulation to heat pumps.
The Path Toward Efficiency – 4:00
Alex Sloan, Operations Manager for Electrify My Home, stresses that the path toward electrification for every home is different. A qualified contractor can assess the unique requirements for your home, apartment, or multi-family building.
