New report: By electrifying buildings, PA would reap massive health benefits, climate pollution reductions

Philadelphia, PA -- Pennsylvania ranks sixth in the nation for its potential to reduce global warming pollution by electrifying buildings, according to a new report released today by the PennEnvironment Research & Policy Center, PennPIRG Education Fund, and Frontier Group. The study, Electric Buildings: Repowering Homes and Businesses for Our Health and Environment, found that completely electrifying Pennsylvania’s homes and businesses by 2050 would reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 13.7 million metric tons -- equal to taking nearly 3 million cars off the road. Going all-electric in our state’s buildings would help cut emissions, improve public health, and protect the planet, the report concluded.
