Pierre Delforge of the Natural Resources Defense Council will share why and how to convert to electric heat pumps for water and space heating in homes and businesses. With carbon-free electricity coming to Sunnyvale, switching to electricity instead of natural gas–a fossil fuel–for major heating appliances can save money and protect the climate.
