About the event
Our homes are one of the easiest places to replace fossil fuels with cleaner electricity, and gas stoves are as bad for children's health as someone smoking cigarettes at home. Electric vehicles cut transportation costs by 3/4ths, and rooftop solar panels can nearly eliminate bills. With bidirectional electric vehicle chargers, cars can provide back-up electricity to a house during power outages, or even contribute electricity to the grid to help during heat waves. Come learn about how to electrify houses, apartments or condominiums, including electric vehicle chargers and rooftop solar.
