The Benefits of Electrification

Electrifying the U.S. economy is how we get to zero emissions by 2050 and have a shot at keeping climate warming within 1.5 °C.

42 percent of our energy-related carbon emissions are the result of decisions we make around our kitchen table: what cars we drive, how we power and heat our homes, how we warm our water, cook our food, and dry our laundry. Electrifying U.S. households will dramatically reduce carbon pollution, increase savings, create millions of new, good-paying jobs, and secure a better, more equitable future for our communities.
