The “electrify everything” movement aims to use cleaner energy and decrease our dependence on fossil fuels. Many people have already switched their gas-powered cars to electric ones for a smaller carbon footprint. Now homeowners are looking to convert any technology or appliance in their home that runs on natural gas to electric power. To learn more about why homeowners are electrifying their homes, explore the infographic below from The Zebra.
There’s nearly an even split in the U.S. between houses that run on electricity or natural gas, and some use a combination of both. While electricity production currently isn’t 100% clean, many local governments are introducing electricity options where you can buy electricity from renewable sources. There’s still a long way to go before the electric grid is completely clean but proponents for electrification say that you shouldn’t wait for a full transformation.
It’s important to remember that the best way to help the environment is by consuming less energy — no matter what source it comes from.
