    Electrification is easy, but getting it right may not be. In the second of this two-part series, we will tackle the how-to of electrifying existing multifamily buildings. With different constraints to new buildings and different sources of money available for different kinds of projects, it can feel like a lot to work through. From funding and incentives to technical challenges and prioritizing, join us as expert speakers shed light on your biggest questions and the critical path to healthy, all-electric buildings.

    This webinar is being held in partnership with the City of San Jose as they progress on their goal of being a climate neutral city by 2030.
