Addressing an Electrification Roadblock: Residential Electric Panel Capacity
Pecan Street’s new analysis explores the opportunities for policymakers and utilities to remove a significant barrier to residential electrification. By incentivizing electric service panel upgrades for existing homes and requiring larger capacity panels for new construction, we can clear the path for full residential electrification. This is also a critical opportunity to ensure a just energy transition by creating sliding incentives based on household income levels.
The updated version of our whitepaper, Addressing an Electrification Roadblock: Residential Electric Panel Capacity, takes a closer look at how the existing electric panel capacity in most homes could be a roadblock to electrification unless panel sizing is addressed with updated building and energy codes and targeted incentive programs.
