GGASHI member Matt Cantor is just completing a local 2800 square foot house with only electric equipment. There is, in fact, no gas meter at all.

The building has a small solar array with micro-inverters, a hybrid electric water heater and two sets of mini-split heat pumps with a total of 6 interior heating/cooling units.

Matt will discuss the reason for these choices and the complications and advantages in taking this path.
