Going Net Zero With Electric
Now Available On Demand
Electrification is the next hurdle in responsible building management that reduces carbon emissions. Yet most of our rental property construction is based on gas-powered energy for heat and (often) cooking.
Join multifamily sustainability expert Mary Nitschke and PG&E’s decarbonization leader Rachel Kuykendall to discuss how to take existing buildings and bring them to net-zero performance that meets regulatory targets and portfolio ESG goals. (Spoiler alert: It actually can be done!)
Rachel Kuykendall is a Principal Strategic Analyst on PG&E’s Decarbonization Strategies team, which is focused on achieving the decarbonized electric and gas systems of the future. Rachel leads utility-level strategy ideation, policy development, strategic pilots and initial implementation of cross-organizational strategic initiatives for issues with significant impacts to PG&E in the 2025-2050 timeframe — with specific focus on the future of the gas system, decarbonization and maintaining affordability for PG&E’s customers.
