It’s a fact of life that one day, fossil fuels will run out. We’re rapidly depleting our natural gas resources at a hitherto unprecedented rate. The switch to electric will not only be better for the environment, but for our bank balances as well.
While this may seem unlikely, across the pond in the UK, there are plans to make all new homes built after 2025 gas-free, and instead powered solely by sustainable means. All gas-fired power stations are set to shut down by the mid-2030s – unless they’re able to eliminate CO2 from their emissions.
It seems only logical that we should expect the United States to follow suit. Local governments who that are looking to tackle climate change head-on are already doing their utmost to make a difference. Recently, Berkeley, California, became the first city in the United States to ban the installation of natural gas setups in newly built homes.
