Climate Smart Webinar: Home Electrification Service Upgrades
Monday, June 19, 2023 (6:00 PM - 7:00 PM) (PDT)
Presented by EFCA Treasurer Sean Armstrong of Redwood Energy: The City of San José, in partnership with Redwood Energy, is holding a series of webinars to educate residents, contractors, developers, property owners and managers on a variety of electrification topics. This is Webinar 5: Home Electrification Service Upgrades. Home electrification can sometimes trigger an electric utility service upgrade, which can cost $2,500 - $30,000 and take 2 - 18 months to complete. Come learn what types of properties may need a service upgrade and what is involved in an upgrade. We'll also discuss how to avoid an upgrade with energy efficiency, 120V appliances, clipping solar inverters, and load balancing "smart" plugs, subpanels, and whole house panels. With a little planning you can save a great deal of time and money.
