Last week, both San Francisco (HERE) and Oakland (HERE) passed ordinances that require all new construction (homes, restaurants, businesses) to be built with all energy coming from electricity. This is because we are increasingly able to generate electricity from renewable sources. And, California is continuing to lead the country in moving our entire electrical system towards renewable sources.
This is a global trend. In the entire country of the United Kingdom, all buildings must be all-electric beginning in 2025 (HERE).
The State of California's Energy Commission is considering when to impose the same requirements on all buildings here. The question is not if, the only question is WHEN.
The County of Marin has adopted a REACH Code for Energy. This code makes it easier to build all-electric homes than to build homes with natural gas. The County of Marin is encouraging all jurisdictions in the County to follow there lead. Already, Mill Valley and San Anselmo have done so.
Fairfax is in the midst of planning its Climate Action Plan. The Climate Action Committee is looking to hear from the people of this town, to help us move forward in wise, and equitable ways. Join us on Monday, as we think together about what we should do.
