Snohomish County to start 'kicking gas' in push for all-electric homes [View all]

EVERETT — The local Sierra Club chapter, in partnership with the Kicking Gas campaign, is encouraging Snohomish County residents to install heat pumps and induction stoves in a new campaign.

During an eight-month initiative last year, Kicking Gas helped over 118 Whidbey Island residents acquire energy-efficient heat pumps.

Now, campaign leaders are welcoming other Western Washington residents to get involved. Sustainability advocates plan to hold an informational session on the campaign from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday over Zoom. Interested attendees can register for the session on the Kicking Gas website.

Despite the name, heat pumps act as both an air conditioner and a heater. The machine releases or captures energy through refrigerants, which travel between an indoor and outdoor unit, allowing heat to be pumped into or out of a home.
