This animated video introduces and explains the concept of Beneficial Electrification. The electric grid is getting greener and every electric end use is getting greener right along with it. As the carbon intensity of every kilowatt-hour goes down, the carbon footprint of every electric end use (water heater, heat pump, etc.) goes down as well. An electric water heater or heat pump installed today will become increasingly greener with each passing day. As the benefits of choosing electric technology increases, there are many opportunities to use electricity to further improve the lives of consumers, save money and improve the environment.
