Dear Canary Media readers,

I love making the clean energy transition something everyone can embrace in their own homes and lives. 

And I couldn’t ask for a better time to be doing this work. The Inflation Reduction Act unleashed a bonanza of incentives to help us get off fossil fuels and switch to electric machines that can run on clean power. But for many of us, the technologies involved are new and unfamiliar, which can make the transition understandably daunting.

That’s why I write articles for Canary Media that explain what you need to know about purchasing heat pumps and other electrified equipment, working with home contractors, and jumping over all manner of home-electrification hurdles. It’s practical advice you can put right to use.

Want to help keep these stories coming? If you like Canary Media’s reporting on home electrification — not to mention clean energy policies, climatetech developments, and so much more — please make a donation to support our work. Your gift will help us cover heat pumps and other key decarbonizing technologies, ultimately galvanizing their adoption.

Canary Media is a nonprofit organization, and we’re dedicated to making our journalism freely available to all, so it’s never behind a paywall. With support from readers and fans like you, we can continue illuminating — for everyone — the path to a clean energy future. Can you give today?

My best,
