These events are designed for homeowners, renters and building professionals to learn about building electrification.

Attendees can hear from experts about switching to all-electric energy in building construction and appliances as a way to help California reach its climate goals. You'll be able to talk with manufacturers about electric technologies that can add value and comfort to a home, as well as learn about rebates or other incentives. 

These expos are free and open to the public, but attendees are asked to register at bayareaexpo.org

About Electrification and the Expo

Electrification is the shift from fossil fuels to clean electricity for transportation, cooking, water heating, space heating and drying clothes. Electrification is critical for California to reach its climate goals.

The Bay Area Home Electrification Expo continues the work of the Global Climate Action Summit and is an adjunct to the New Buildings Institute’s Getting to Zero Forum being held October 9 through 11 in Oakland.
