What Is Electrification?

Electrification means transitioning your home or business to clean and affordable electricity for a healthier community and planet. This means being more mindful about how we build our buildings and what goes into them. Transitioning our appliances with electric alternatives makes homes and buildings safer, more efficient, and more environmentally friendly.

Why Go All Electric?

You’ll also get better performance and lower utility bills with all electric technologies.  As a bonus, it’s healthier to work, play, and live in buildings that are all electric. It also builds resiliency; our buildings and homes will be more resilient to withstand extreme weather events that Las Cruces faces like extreme heat.
