Protect yourself from unpredictable energy costs with electrification

As businesses continue to navigate an uncertain and constantly evolving economy, one thing remains constant: the importance of cost savings. One significant way businesses can save money is through electrification which can decrease your energy costs by transitioning to a more stably priced energy source, protecting you from the extreme price fluctuations we have seen recently.

What is electrification?

Electrification is the process of converting a system or service to use electric power instead of non-electric sources of power, like gas. Common electrification applications include water heating, space heating, and cooking. Electrification can lead to cost savings for your business, and support California’s efforts to eliminate gas appliance use in the state by 2030. By making the move to electric now, you can take advantage of rebates offered by the Comprehensive Energy Management Solutions (CEMS) Program to assist you in this transition.

Benefits of electrification for businesses

  • Lower energy costs: Electrification allows businesses to transition to renewable energy sources which can be cheaper in the long run.
  • Reduce operational costs: The use of renewable energy can reduce maintenance, repair and replacement costs, as well as eliminate the need for fuel storage.

  • Reduce your carbon footprint: Electrification can also help businesses reduce their impact on the environment which can support corporate sustainability goals and be appealing to customers and investors who are increasingly concerned with sustainability.

  • Improve indoor air quality: Gas appliances can contribute to indoor emissions like carbon monoxide, nitrogen dioxide, particulate matter and formaldehyde. Electric equipment does not produce any indoor air pollution, helping mitigate the dangers of carbon monoxide poisoning, among other harmful health effects.

CEMS has rebates to help you save on electrification costs

By electrifying equipment, businesses can receive rebates from CEMS to offset some of the upfront costs associated with the transition. In most cases, the rebate covers the equipment and the installation, making it a win-win for any business.

Heat pump water heaters at no cost to you!

Heat pump water heaters (HPWH) are a highly efficient alternative to natural gas water heaters. HPWHs can reduce energy costs while helping you electrify your business and meet or exceed building codes.

Once qualified, the HPWH installation is scheduled at a time that works for you. From purchasing, transporting and installing, we take care of it all!
