Electric Vehicles and Beneficial Electrification
What is Beneficial Electrification?
The application of electricity to end-uses that would otherwise consume fossil fuels, where doing so satisfies at least one of following conditions, without adversely affecting the others:
|- save consumers money||- improve product quality, or consumer quality of life|
|- reduce [GHG] emissions||- foster a more resilient grid.|
Some examples would be heating your home with an electric heat pump rather than by burning natural gas; or replacing gas-engine powered tools like leaf blowers or weed whackers with electric versions; or traveling in an electric vehicle instead of a gasoline-burning one.
Check out the nifty Beneficial Electrification flyer. Available now at SMPA offices and events.
