 RAC-NY Climate Covenant Legislative Priorities 2022: Moving Away from Natural Gas in Buildings

Buildings play a major role in greenhouse gas emissions, which trap heat in the atmosphere and warm the planet. Fossil fuels burned in buildings for heating, hot water, cooking, and more account for approximately one third of all greenhouse gas emissions in New York State. Moving away from fossil fuel infrastructure and transitioning to clean energy is crucial for mitigating climate change.

RAC-NY is focusing on two, complementary building-sector bills designed to reduce emissions and transition the State from an energy framework that favors natural gas to one that is exclusively powered by renewable energy.

  • All-Electric Building Act (S6843B/A8431A)

  • Gas Transition and Affordable Energy Act (S8198/A8198)

Send a message to your New York State elected officials to urge them to support these two crucial bills and transition to clean energy.

And mark your calendar for May 22 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at TBK for our Regional Climate Covenant Gathering - get educated, get engaged, and help determine our action locally and in New York State!
