From coast to coast, several programs are starting to help homeowners switch from space and water heating fueled by oil, propane, and natural gas to high-efficiency heat pumps powered by clean electricity. Multiple studies have found such conversions will be necessary to achieve deep cuts in carbon dioxide emissions (see here and here), while also saving energy and money for customers. Our recent ACEEE report profiled a few programs, primarily in California and the Northeast, that are promoting electrification and often combining equipment incentives with other energy efficiency measures.
