Utility Perspective: All-Electric Smart, Clean, Connected, Resilient Homes

Portland General Electric is driving innovation in products and services to enable homebuilders to future-proof building practices.

PGE will share its experience in smart thermostats, connected water heaters, and battery backup while confronting misconceptions and charting a pathway for homebuilders to reduce costs, improve comfort, and support Oregon in meeting its ambitious decarbonization goals.
