Induction cooking research

January 6, 2023

The induction cooking monitoring project is currently underway! The goals of this research are to assess the energy saving opportunities, health impacts, and customer satisfaction from replacing electric, propane, or natural gas residential ranges with induction. 

Slipstream has partnered with Upper Peninsula Power Company (UPPCO) and Indiana Michigan Power (I&M) for this research.

Study overview

Year One: We installed energy monitors on 30 residential cooking ranges to collect data on energy use while cooking. For the 10 participating homes with propane or natural gas ranges, we added air quality monitors to assess the health impacts of different cooking range types.

Year Two: At the beginning of year two, each participant's existing range will be replaced with a new electric induction range. We will continue to collect data on the induction range for a year. We will also conduct a survey at the conclusion of the monitoring period to assess customer satisfaction.

We look forward to sharing our results at the conclusion of the study in 2025.
