We’re a team of volunteers, sustainability professionals, and avid home-cooks collaborating through the San Diego Green Building Council to help make this program available to the larger San Diego community.

Why Electric Cooktops?

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.

Many people and cities in the region are seeing the benefits of more fully electrifying homes, and encouraging people to move away from natural gas-powered appliances. The benefits of home electrification are numerous, beyond GHG emissions reduction:

  • Less expensive to build and operate homes 
  • Reduced external pollution
  • Eliminates Carbon Monoxide poisoning risk 
  • Improved Health: better indoor air w/o combustion byproducts (NOx) 
  • Better backup power/water in an emergency 
  • Improved lifestyle 

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.
