ACTION NEEDED-Climate Act Movement
NOTICE-Please show your support in this effort to show legislation that you support the use of natural gas. According to the New York’s Climate Act 2019 decarbonizing policy, it is outlined that electric may be the sole energy provider and gas will not offered as a second source. There is a Draft Scoping Plan that has been released by the state’s Climate Action Council for these targeted goals. We know how drastic this can effect the home building industry not to mention support industries. Appliances for home and water heating, cooking and laundry will all be effected.
This plan proposes converting nearly everything to electric power, relying on new wind and solar energy to replace natural gas. We need to act now and let our legislation know the importance of keeping natural gas as an energy source.
