The human induced climate crisis is real and growing every day. It’s no surprise that the built environment – residential and commercial structures – contributes a substantial portion of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

In order to combat climate change, rapid market transformation and installation of electric appliances are needed. The good news is technology developments and price reductions have made it affordable to replace gas appliances with high performing electric ones. The largest barrier to full home electrification is found in the kitchen, specifically the cooktop.
