Love Electric aims to accelerate the adoption of heat pumps, heat pump water heaters, and other efficient electric technologies in homes and businesses across Colorado, to lower consumer energy costs, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and provide improved health, comfort and other benefits. Love Electric is an initiative of the Beneficial Electrification League of Colorado (BEL-CO).
BEL-CO is a coalition of stakeholders in Colorado working to advance beneficial electrification in Colorado’s buildings and industrial facilities through building leadership, sharing knowledge, fostering collaboration, coordinating market development strategies, and increasing consumer awareness.
Beneficial electrification refers to installing energy-efficient electric equipment—such as heat pumps for space heating and cooling, heat pump water heaters, and induction/electric cooktops—in place of combustion-fueled (typically propane or natural gas) equipment. Switching from a non-electric energy source to an efficient electric energy source is beneficial because as the electrical grid is increasingly powered by renewable energy, the electrification of appliances can:
Reduce customer costs,
Lower greenhouse gas emissions,
Improve indoor air quality, and
Utilize grid resources more efficiently and flexibly.
