    I’m glad you added the part about having solar electricity, as I recently switched to solar. I’ve been anxious to get a much needed new cooking range and was planning on a gas stove, but after watching yet another sad documentary on Fracking, I decided against it. You just verified what I was thinking. Fracking and the environmental effects of all natural gas production must be taken into account as well. So sad to not be getting gas, but I try to walk the walk as much as possible. Thanks for the article!

    The solar-powered home’s “exception to the rule” is only a partial exception. If you pay for grid electricity, then it’s a sure bet that a large percentage of the electricity you consume results in significant emissions.

    Even in the best case scenario, where your solar powered home’s net grid power consumption is significantly negative, using your electric oven will result in less emission-free power being sent to the grid. In aggregate, that means more CO2 emissions.
