START SAVING FOR YOUR GOVERNMENT MANDATED KITCHEN RE-MODEL

• https://www.ethanallen.org By Rob Roper

During the September 2 meeting of the Cross Sector Mitigation subcommittee, talk turned to eliminating fossil fuel use for cooking, 100%, by 2035 (44 – 55 min mark). This means that if your home or restaurant uses gas for cooking today, you better start planning to rip that system out and replace it with electric.

While you're ripping out your gas stove, you might as well replace your oil and gas water heating systems, which will be illegal by 2035, and oil and gas space heating systems, which will be illegal by 2040.  "Ozone depleting substitutes" are also on the list, so that could mean a new refrigerator and freezer.

That's for existing structures. If you're starting from scratch, any new construction will have to be "net zero energy" by 2030. How exactly that is to be achieved remains unclear, but it doesn't sound cheap.
