Why go electric?

The energy transition is well underway—and picking up speed. You can’t drive far without seeing electric vehicles (EVs) on the road, or charging stations clustered in parking lots. But it won’t end there.

Consumers and companies are already taking the next steps in the electrification journey, driven by motivating factors such as:

  • Living more sustainablyLiving more sustainably
  • Increasing energy self-relianceIncreasing energy self-reliance

What does electrification look like?

In the past 15 years, homeowners have adopted rooftop solar panels in ever-growing numbers. That was the most common entry point for going electric until recently.

With EVs now entrenched in the mainstream, the journey will increasingly look something like this:

But with proper integration, they can also charge home energy storage systems. It's another option for homeowners seeking to reduce their carbon footprint—and reliance on the grid.
