The Flipside Report: A White Paper on Targeted Geographic Electrification in California’s Gas Transition

Equity, Gas Planning

This paper argues that, in addition to planning a strategic phaseout of the gas system, we need to focus on a strategic phase-in of electrification. We used the term “geographically targeted electrification” to indicate an approach that prioritizes investments in ESJ communities and systematizes uncoordinated approaches to electrification. The paper offers guidance on how to transition a “section or entire neighborhood” off the gas system in California in order to reduce “the number of gas distribution pipelines that must be maintained throughout the transition.
