California Cities Lead the Home Energy Revolution

42 cities and counties in California have enacted gas restrictions to their building codes, according to a Sierra Club tracker, driving the market for all-electric solutions to home energy. Motivated by health, safety, and climate concerns, these jurisdictions cover more than 10% of California’s population and include such large cities as San Jose, San Francisco, and Oakland.

These municipalities are sending a strong signal to policymakers and the marketplace that smart, comfortable all-electric building solutions are the next frontier of the clean energy revolution. Carbon emissions from burning gas in the home account for more than 10% of all U.S. emissions. For California to meet its 2030 target of 40% reductions, on a pathway to zero carbon by 2045, requires the introduction of new technologies that can electrify buildings in a way that can be equitably enjoyed by all California residents.

However, not all all-electric solutions are created equally. Smart home energy systems that can separate when appliances use the electricity from when they provide heat and hot water, can dramatically lower customer bills and emissions.

The Harvest Thermal Pod provides space conditioning + hot water efficiently and comfortably while reducing emissions by 90% compared with gas, and astoundingly, up to 80% compared with all-electric heat pumps. Using predictive algorithms and hydronic controls, it consumes electricity during the cleanest and cheapest part of the day and provides heat and hot water whenever it is needed.

Best news of all? It doesn’t have to be more expensive. The Harvest Pod lowers bills by up to 40% compared with standard electric heat pumps, while providing comfortable, consistent heating and hot water 24/7. For home builders, there is no need for expensive hookups. And it works with off-the-shelf components.
