Transitioning to electric appliances increases the power use in your home and could a trigger panel upgrade if the current electrical panel is close to capacity. Most older homes have 60-100 Amp panels while some newer homes have 200 Amps or higher.
AMP provides a $2,500 rebate for electric panel upgrades if you also electrify two appliances. One installation must be a natural gas to electric conversion and the second must be an all-electric appliance. The installation of a Level 2 EV charger can satisfy the requirement for the all-electric appliance.
Upgrading to 200 Amps will ensure you have plenty of capacity for future electrification. With smart planning using the Watt Diet, electrification can also be achieved with a 100 Amp panel for most homes.
