Undoubtedly, one of the most important resources we consume as humans is energy. So many things depend on it to power equipment, heat our homes, and keep the world running. Over the years, the term “clean energy” has been thrown around countless times, and it has built up more and more momentum. Clean energy is collected from renewable resources, which is the opposite of the type of energy we use now, which is fossil fuels. Eliminating the use of fossil fuels means homes will no longer be heated by gas, which is what California plans to do by the year 2045.
In September of 2018, Governor of California Jerry Brown signed a law that would require California to harvest 100 percent of its electricity from wind power, solar power, and hydropower by 2045. This change is one of many that have been occurring around the world to combat climate change. The new law gives California the most extensive goals for clean energy of any state in the U.S., making it the leader in climate conservation efforts.
What It Means for Gas Heating
Switching from fossil fuels to clean energy means much will change when it comes to the appliances that currently run on those fuels. Heating appliances that use fossil fuels, including natural gas, will change to systems that produce heat electrically.
If this has you wondering how you can plan for new electric heating and air conditioning, the Electrification Professionals at A-1 Guaranteed & Air Conditioning, Inc. are prepared to show you new and exciting ways to heat and cool your home.
What You Can Do to Prepare
If you need a new system, consider not replacing it with yet another gas furnace. Let us make your home more comfortable than ever using a clean energy, energy-efficient system using mini heat pump technology. In addition, most of the costs can be offset with just a few solar panels.
As electrification is adopted, the gas companies will need to spread their operating and maintenance cost to the ever depleting consumer base of their product resulting in gas prices potentially exploding four to five times from today’s rates over the next ten to twenty years.
With these changes on the horizon, Californians have been given the exciting opportunity to spearhead the clean energy movement. Finding heating and air conditioning professionals who are ready for the change may seem impossible , but A-1 Guaranteed is leading the challenge and staying ahead of the curve as the first in residential electrification. We can help you embrace the change!
California taking the initiative and moving forward with this clean energy project will no doubt have its ups and downs. Eliminating fossil fuels will prove beneficial to the environment and to us, but consumers must start planning now. It is important to stay ahead of this change so we’re not caught off guard or waiting until the last minute to get everything squared away.
