American Public Gas Association

The American Public Gas Association (APGA) is speaking out against a legislation in California that would require all buildings in the state to be “electric ready” beginning in 2022.  APGA submitted a letter to the California State Assembly Committee on Natural Resources in opposition to the proposal, known as Assembly Bill 3001. The bill defines electric-ready buildings” as containing infrastructure “necessary to enable building occupants to use electrical equipment in lieu of natural gas-fired equipment, such as space and water heating equipment, without the need for additional upgrades to the building’s electrical infrastructure,” APGA said.  In its letter of opposition, APGA stated that homeowners should have the right to choose what energy source meets their needs and charged the legislation unfairly eliminates natural gas use in homes and businesses.
