Diane Bailey and Tom Kabat will offer practical tips on eliminating gas from your heating and cooling systems, your water heater and other appliances. Doing so will make your home healthier by eliminating toxic indoor pollution, and it will make it safer by capping volatile gas lines under your home.

Presented by the Citizens Environmental Council, it will be held from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in the Maple Meeting Room at the new zero net energy Burlingame Community Center, 850 Burlingame Ave., Burlingame. There is no charge for admission, but preregistration is required at https://tinyurl.com/CECgasout.

Bailey and Kabat, who founded the Campaign for Fossil Free Buildings in Silicon Valley and work with Menlo Spark, will explain how to make low-cost electrification plans, where to find installers, how to get advice from “ambassadors” who have electrified their homes, and how to apply for rebates and incentives that are available. They will also answer questions.

The two speakers are leaders of a large advocacy movement that has prompted 29 cities and counties on the Peninsula to reduce or eliminate natural gas in buildings. Assisted by guidebooks they helped write, the movement to electrify buildings is gaining traction nationally. They recently helped obtain a $4.5 million grant from the State of California to make the switch from natural gas easier and more affordable in Menlo Park.
