Gas to Electric Conversion

Important: To qualify for rebates under our Gas to Electric Conversion option, you must replace existing gas appliances and equipment.

 

Electric appliances offer greater efficiency than their gas counterparts, while reducing emissions at the same time. Eliminating combustion devices from your home improves safety and indoor air quality, too.

 

If you have solar, an all-electric house is the way to go.
