Alamedans can take advantage of many incentives to help with initial costs
Alameda's electricity derives from 100% clean energy sources thanks to Alameda Municipal Power. AMP achieved this milestone in
Jan 2020, decades ahead of California’s goal of 100% clean power by 2045. 
Fuel switching from gas to electric is an essential step to reach Alameda's emissions goals.
Appliances that run on natural gas create indoor air pollution because they burn fossil fuels in a closed environment. 
By switching to electric appliances, you’ll reduce pollutants like carbon monoxide (CO) and nitrogen dioxide (NO2)  that can exacerbate respiratory and other health issues.
