Reducing the use of “natural” gas (methane) by switching to electric appliances
is the best way to slash our climate footprint.
Together, we can do this–we’re your neighbors, and we’re here to show you how.

Like every community, Ashland contributes to global warming. A big portion of greenhouse gas emissions comes from our homes and businesses, where many of us burn “natural” gas for heating and cooking. “Natural” gas is about 90% methane — a potent greenhouse gas with damaging health impacts and 86x the global warming potential of carbon dioxide over 20 years. It’s time to move away from burning methane at home by joining the “100% electric” movement — also called electrification.

In June 2022, Avista sent a bill insert to all its local gas customers urging customers to reduce their footprint by paying extra for renewable “natural” gas (methane).
Our take? Malarkey!


Climate Change is
Everyone’s Problem

We can all be part of the solution.
In our Spring 2022 mailer to Ashland households, we laid out all the reasons why you should start planning now to make the shift off “natural” gas (methane).\

About Us

Electrify Ashland Now is a campaign launched in 2022 with a goal of electrifying Ashland homes to dramatically reduce our community’s climate footprint. Efficient, high-quality electric appliances are affordable and available. Local suppliers and contractors can provide heat pumps for winter warming and summer cooling. Induction cooktops offer safe, flame-free cooking with the responsiveness of gas stoves. We’re here to help you plan your journey

For some of us, replacing gas furnaces, water heaters, and stoves is within reach now. On this website you can find local contractors, learn about the financial and climate costs and benefits of electric heat pumps and heat pump water heaters, learn the steps for planning your electrification journey, and learn more about your the products currently available. You can get personal assistance from your Ashland neighbors and local experts, or attend a zoom support group session. You can also read “How I did it” stories from real homeowners of Ashland about their electrification journey

Others can join the Electrify Ashland Now campaign by urging landlords, businesses, and our City government to support the full electrification of Ashland. We can do this.
