East Bay Electrification Expo: Fight Climate Change in a Clean Energy Home

Thursday | February 07, 2019 | 3:00 pm — 8:00 pm

East Bay Electrification Expo: Fight Climate Change with a Clean Energy Home/Apt!

Hosted by the Ecology Center, StopWaste and City of Berkeley, with the generous support of BayREN.

Why? Our homes and buildings are the second largest source of greenhouse gas emissions. But thanks to local Community Choice Energy providers, electricity in the Bay Area is clean, and is getting cleaner and greener every year. We can vastly reduce our carbon footprint by getting off natural gas in our homes and electrifying everything. Not only does electrification reduce greenhouse gases, it also makes our homes healthier and safer.

When? Thursday, February 7, 2019, 3pm-8pm

Where? Ed Roberts Campus, 3075 Adeline St, Berkeley, CA 94703

Who? Renters, Homeowners & Building Professionals
