San Francisco Bans Natural Gas Hookups
No more clean, efficient, natural gas for them.
- San Francisco’s Board of Supervisors votes to ban natural gas in new buildings, saying the legislation will help the city cut greenhouse gas emissions and improve safety
- The legislation will apply to more than 54K homes and 32M sq. ft. of commercial space in the city’s development pipeline; any building that applies for a permit after June 2021 will be subject to the requirements, although an amendment to the ordinance allows restaurants to apply for a waiver to use a natural gas stove until the end of 2022.
