Electrify Everything

Electrify Everything

Welcome to the Electrify Everything Campaign!

At 350 Marin, we believe in a sustainable and clean future powered by electricity. Our mission is to promote the widespread adoption of electric power across all aspects of our lives, from transportation to household appliances and beyond. By transitioning to electricity as our primary energy source, we can reduce our dependence on fossil fuels and make significant strides toward combating climate change.

Why Electrify Everything?

  • Climate Action: Electrifying everything is a crucial step in addressing climate change. By replacing fossil fuels with clean electricity, we can drastically reduce greenhouse gas emissions and mitigate the environmental impact of our daily activities.
  • Clean Air: Fossil fuel combustion is a major contributor to air pollution, leading to adverse health effects. Electrification helps improve air quality by eliminating harmful emissions, making our cities and communities healthier places to live.
  • Energy Efficiency: Electric power offers unparalleled energy efficiency compared to traditional combustion engines. By transitioning to electric vehicles, heating systems, and appliances, we can significantly reduce energy waste and increase overall efficiency.
  • Renewable Energy Integration: Electrification goes hand in hand with the expansion of renewable energy sources. By shifting to electricity, we can integrate more wind, solar, and other clean energy technologies into our power grids, enabling a greener and more sustainable energy system.
  • Cost Savings: Electric power can offer long-term cost savings for consumers. Electric vehicles have lower maintenance and operational costs compared to gasoline-powered cars, and electric heating systems can be more efficient and cost-effective over time.

What Can You Do?

  • Electrify Your Transportation: Consider switching to an electric vehicle (EV) for your daily commute. EVs offer zero tailpipe emissions and are becoming more affordable and accessible. Join the electric revolution and reduce your carbon footprint on the road.
    • Did you know that you can cut your carbon footprint in half and reduce driving costs when you switch from a gas car to an EV? Join Ride and Drive Clean for a webinar or in-person event and learn how you can save money when you electrify your ride. Sign up today!
  • Upgrade Your Home: Replace fossil fuel-powered heating systems with electric alternatives like heat pumps. Install energy-efficient appliances such as induction stoves, refrigerators, and water heaters. These upgrades not only save energy but also contribute to a cleaner environment.
  • Support Policy Changes: Advocate for policies that promote electrification and incentivize the adoption of electric technologies. Encourage your local and national governments to invest in charging infrastructure, renewable energy development, and clean transportation initiatives.
  • Spread Awareness: Share the benefits of electrification with your friends, family, and community. Engage in discussions, host informational sessions, or organize local events to raise awareness about the positive impacts of electrifying everything.
    • Marin Green Home Tours: The second annual virtual Marin County Green Home Tour, scheduled for 6 p.m. Thursday, October 26, 2024 will be a stellar chance to see what “green”-minded neighbors are doing to alleviate stress on the planet while cutting their own costs. To see the 2023 Marin Green Home Tours, go here.

Join us in our mission to Electrify Everything and create a sustainable future for generations to come. Together, we can make a significant difference and pave the way for a cleaner and greener world.
