Our Electrification Initiatives

When it comes to electrification and upgrading in the coming years, here are the broad A2ZERO initiatives to consider: ​

  • Energy audits: Understanding how a building is using energy and where improvements can be made. 

  • Energy efficiency: Switching to energy efficient electric appliances, LED lighting, HVAC systems and water heating. 

  • Weatherization of buildings: Modifications to optimize energy efficiency, including air sealing, improved insulation, door and window upgrades and more. 

  • Load management: Improving energy efficiency and operating costs through systems such as energy management software and smart thermostats. 

  • Distributed electrical generation: Installing battery storage systems, along with solar arrays, to increase the energy resilience of a household or business.

  • Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging: Providing the necessary infrastructure at homes and businesses so people can make the switch to EVs.
