California has continuously adopted aggressive and far-reaching goals for greenhouse gas emissions reductions. Specifically, these goals aim to reach an 80 percent reduction below 1990 greenhouse gas emissions levels by 2050. Local jurisdictions in the Sacramento Region toyed with the idea of mandating electric appliances to lead the state in greenhouse gas emissions policy. Electrification has also been discussed statewide. The California Building Industry Association recently funded a study to investigate the true costs to consumers to electrify their homes. In this initial phase of the study, they looked at single-family homes in several locations in Southern California.
