To slow climate change, lawmakers in a handful of states are proposing bills or passing laws that convert their local electricity grids to renewable sources.


"Electrifying buildings is really the next frontier,” Rachel Golden, an organizer with Sierra Club’s California chapter, tells ConsumerAffairs.
The Sierra Club and National Resources Defense Council are currently lobbying California regulators to encourage consumers and businesses to switch from using gas-powered stoves, water heaters, and pool pumps to stoves, heaters, and pumps that run on electricity. The groups have not yet introduced all the specifics, but their proposals will likely include more rebates.
