For nearly 25 years, Fresh Energy has been working to transition to a clean energy system in the state. Increasingly we see that an “all-electric economy” may just be the answer. The keys are to:
- Power more of our economy with electricity while simultaneously ensuring that our electricity comes from the wind, the sun, and other clean, local energy sources.
- Build new homes and other buildings that are so energy efficient that it takes only small amounts of electricity to heat and cool them.
- Reconsider our electric system and embrace technology that can help spread consumer demand out over time – reducing costs for everyone.
