Why Make Your Next Choice Electric?
The ACT Government is preparing to electrify our city and transition away from the use of fossil fuel gas by 2045. We’re doing this because an all-electric Canberra will allow us to power our city, homes, businesses, and transport in a cleaner and cheaper way.
We are approaching this transition responsibly and sustainably over the next 20 years. We want to enable ACT homes and businesses to save money by taking small steps and making smart climate choices. This means transitioning appliances to electric at a time that is right for them.
The web experience helps households plan their own all-electric future. It provides tailored results and appliance recommendations. It also connects Canberrans with ACT Government programs and support.
