Electrification Meeting - Shared screen with speaker view
Who can see your viewing activity?
Don’t rub it in Mark!
Mark, you’ve made a good case for why gas is a bad choice. For many of us, gas here — installed and operating. Are you going to discuss the cost of replacement and cost of electric replacements? Back in “ye olden days,” gas (and oil) was much more cost-effective than electric systems.
To Steve: If you do not qualify for the programs I'll go over, I'd recommend reaching out to organizations like Think Little or Local Energy Alliance Program who can help you determine those costs to see what makes the most sense for your home
i'm gonna have a drink Frank!
Hello Chase, thank you for all the information! I would like to know what type of measurement and verification process you have in place? is it possible for you to do billing analysis versus deemed values?
Hello. Is this meeting being recorded? I was late joining and I think the guy before Chase was suggesting to switch to gas appliances to electric before replacements become more expensive?
Yes it’s recording!
Where will it be posted?
We will send a follow up email with the link to the recording!
Economic development must be sustainable :)

Spending a weekend at the Chesapeake Bay Foundations island adjacent to Tangier Island was when I knew I wanted to shift my work to climate change.
learning about free trade zones and corporations' ability to ignore national laws and rights
clean air to breathe, but also fossil fuels are ruining our earth and is not sustainable for much longer.
When I realized that the most pressing issue we faced was not racial justice but climate change prevention, it hyper focused me on preventing climate chage
As responsible and educated adult, it only makes sense to do what is right.

We are in at the infancy of this movement
Exxon Valdez spill. gaining momentum.
Living in the Southern California desert for 9 years.
I think we are at a tipping point
Where we stand: We just hit a bunt and are hoping to make it to (at least) first base (I always love a baseball analogy).
An Inconvenient Truth - ?14 years ago.? Feel that humanity is failing. It is inconvenient, resisted, we will pay for not paying attention.
@laura: depending on the program, we conduct a comprehensive energy audit of the home and input data into a DOE-approved energy modeling software to determine whether measures are cost-effective. Unfortunately, collecting utility bills for a full analysis isn't always possible with our clients.

What is SME?
LMI = low and moderate income
LMI = Low or Moderate Income
I liked the facebook page Daryl!
I believe Small to Midsize
Small and midsize enterprises
Noah Goldmann, BlocPower
SME = small- and medium-sized enterprises!
Chase, Could you provide a blurb that I can post to Nextdoor? I live in an area of Richmond where many LMI folks live. I'll email Amory tomorrow to obtain. Also, you could provide to Mary-Stuart to send out w/ webinar link. Thanks!
I thought this started at 8pm? Am I late?
@anthony, it started at 7pm
Anthony, it started at 7PM but we are recording it : )
oh no! It saved incorrectly on my calendar. Sorry all, great to hear it is being recorded!
Thank you Noah and Mark for breaking down my shorthand. So sorry folks! I'm too close it. =)
@daryl - great idea! Project:HOMES is the weatherization provider in the Richmond areahttps://www.projecthomes.org/
Scale is crucial for solar for farms
@Chase, thank you. Would it be useful to perform this type of bill measurement? Do you have a resources limit, a technical limitations or is simply not useful?
Rose, does your company operate in Virginia? If so, where?
Hi Susan, yes we do! While we have most current efforts in the DMV, we are expand rapidly in all of VA.
If one wants to go electric on a furnace or water heater, what are some ballpark figures on price compared to just replacing with a gas appliance?
First thanks to Mary-Stuart and Hunter for this informative webinar. My question is for Chase: “Is this a good way to describe what CHP Energy Solutions does is a 501c3 which offers electrical transition information for low income families. They also do weatherization which insulates homes and keeps from heat and A/C from leaving and energy wasted. They do the latter free of charge!
If you don't need electrical or other building upgrades, your costs shouldn't be that much different. And you'll save money if you're replacing both a heating and AC system.

What is the most efficient level of coordination? In the study case Rose was describing, it seemed that the NY city was coordinating these efforts. Is there a role for local governments to play in order to make federal and utility’s initiatives more effective?
Any options for replacing boiler/radiator heat system without extra duct work?
Chase -- any conflicts with utility funding and electrification?
I have an all electric very energy efficient house and an electric car (there are 45 homes in my solar community in Fulton (Richmond)). With solar panels (6.8kW) my electric bill runs $7.98/month during this time of year. I'm providing more electricity to Dominion Energy than they're providing me. The future is electric.
@alistair - we are a weatherization provider first, electrification opportunities are only coming online as of July 1, 2021
There should be Sierra Club action alert coming soon... ;-)
So watch your email inbox for that!
Mary-Stuart, Ann, Susan, any of you want to say anything about schools right now?
Will updates/discussions about the schools electrification happen over zoom?
Alistair, absolutely. We will keep everyone updated on our electrification work over the upcoming weeks and months!
Many thanks for presentation!Very informative

what about keeping the pipelines for possible hydrogen distribution?

Folks can get a battery backup system whether or not they have solar. Sooner or later EVs (electric vehicles) will be able to power our homes during power outages. Ford F-150 Lightning video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zxe352yOYyk

Thank you all!
Thank you all for joining, thank you to Mary-Stuart for putting it together, and to Chase, Rose and Noah for spending some of your precious family time!
Thanks! Good night
