Chicago PSR is pleased to announce our summer webinar on the health and climate change benefits of building electrification (BE). BE promotes use of clean energy rather than natural gas to power buildings, old and new.
Join us for a webinar on Monday, August 2 at 5:00pm Central Time. Our webinar will feature these speakers:
- Emma Hines of RMI will provide an overview of the current state of natural gas use in buildings and how we can switch to clean electricity
- Peter Orris, M.D., M.P.H., Chicago PSR Board President, will explain how indoor air pollution harms our health
- Daniel Robles of the Illinois Environmental Council will update us on legislative action currently in the works to help push Chicago towards a robust BE policy
