What is Beneficial Electrification?

The term “beneficial electrification” refers to innovations in energy technologies which are creating new ways to use electricity in place of on-site fossil fuels; such as gasoline, natural gas and fuel oil.

Benefits of Beneficial Electrification:

  1. Reduces energy costs – Electricity is often less expensive than alternative fuel

  2. Reduces carbon emissions – Electricity is cleaner fuel than on-site fossil fuel

  3. Improves quality of life – Electric equipment is quieter, compact, and low-maintenance

Chugach offers a variety of beneficial electrification incentive programs to its members.
