What is a HPWH?



Why install a HPWH?


Water heating accounts for a significant amount of energy used in our homes. Most homes in Palo Alto use natural gas to power their water heaters. Natural gas is a fossil fuel that emits GHGs into the atmosphere when used. Palo Alto is committed to providing clean energy. We have taken actions that have led to a carbon neutral electricity supply and today most of our electricity is coming from wind, solar and hydro resources. We are here to help if you are ready to make the switch.
