Beneficial Electrification

York Lebanon Ballroom

Beneficial Electrification, or BE, is viewed by many as a win-win-win solution for electricity users, the environment, and utilities, but is it all it’s cracked up to BE? This energetic panel will dig into the technological and regulatory barriers to BE, and ask the tough questions: who would benefit most, and who could be left behind? What impact would BE have on gas utilities? What is a realistic timeframe for residential, small business, and commercial sectors to switch to BE? Why would the PUC support BE? What is the role of other renewables?
