What is a Roadmap to Renewable Energy?

A Roadmap to Renewable Energy gives you the personalized information you need to understand the many aspects, benefits, and considerations of switching from fossil fuels to renewable energy.

With a big-picture overview of what a Fuel Switch could look like for you, your home, and your carbon footprint, you will have the information you need to become carbon neutral while fitting your budget and individual circumstances and complementing your lifestyle.

A Roadmap to Renewable Energy from Fuel Switch also provides important financial insights related to energy efficiency home upgrades including project cost estimates and energy savings projections. Our custom Roadmaps give you a sound idea of improvements by cost and potential long-term savings so you are informed and empowered throughout the Fuel Switching process.

In just a few minutes, we guide you through our approach to each stage of Fuel Switching, from baseline energy efficiency and renewable heating and cooling methods to harnessing solar energy and driving electric vehicles.

Accessing your custom Roadmap to Renewable Energy alleviates confusion, anxiety, and involved, multi-factor analyses by providing a side-by-side comparison of your home’s current efficiency performance against projected outcomes of specified upgrades.

What comes next?

To receive a more precise Roadmap, the next step is to schedule an energy audit with one of our assessors. After reviewing the audit, our team will be able to provide specific cost estimates for the proposed work as well as close-to-exact energy savings projections.

The concept of a Fuel Switch is new to most people, and there are a lot of financial and technical details to understand and consider.

2. Renewable heating & cooling

What is a heat pump? Heat pumps are used to heat and cool buildings. They don’t create heat; instead, they work by moving heat, either into or out of a specific area. When combined with solar-generated electricity, heat pumps provide homes with a renewable option for year-round heating and cooling.

3. Solar electricity

Solar electricity is at the heart of the Fuel Switch concept. Solar panels harness the power of the sun to create electricity without creating any harmful byproducts. Solar panels, also called photovoltaic (PV) systems, have no moving parts and are extremely reliable.

4. Electric vehicles

Electric vehicles (EVs) are a major part of adopting a net zero lifestyle. Automobiles powered by gasoline account for a huge portion of a family’s C02 emissions and are very expensive to operate and maintain. Electric vehicles powered by solar electricity offer both tremendous environmental and financial benefits, are quieter than gas-powered vehicles, and offer smoother drivetrain performance.

5. Financing

For most people, financing is one of the keys to Fuel Switching. Here are a few options that outline the best ways to finance a Fuel Switch project.

  • Cash
  • Home equity line of credit
  • Refinance a mortgage
  • HomeStyle energy loan
