Go Electric and Benefit the Environment

Heating with electricity, including electric or electric hydronic baseboard heaters, offers important benefits for the environment.

Electricity is among the only forms of energy that can use clean, renewable resources for power generation.

Renewable sources of electricity generation, such as solar energy, hydropower and wind power, are readily available, produce little waste and minimize pollution to the air or water.

As renewable energy sources are increasingly used for electricity generation, electrically heated homes will play a bigger role in helping to conserve energy, which in turn, benefits the environment.

Many utilities now offer “green pricing options,” which allow customers to support a greater level of utility company investment in renewable energy technologies. Participating customers pay a premium on their electric bills to cover the incremental cost of the additional renewable energy.
