Transitioning buildings from natural gas to clean electricity, such as through heating and cooling systems, water heaters, and cooking equipment, will be key to reaching California’s emissions reductions goals. The City of Berkeley has taken a lead on this issue by banning natural gas hookups in new low-rise construction. Earlier this month, the ban survived a challenge in federal court, although opponents are planning to appeal the decision. At our next Lunch & Learn, join us to discuss the path to building decarbonization in California. Panelists will include Berkeley City Councilwoman Kate Harrison, who sponsored the bill, Denise Grab of the Rocky Mountain Institute, and Ethan Elkind of CLEE.
