Building Electrification

About the Equitable Building Decarbonization Plan

The Equitable Building Decarbonization Plan(PDF, 4MB) (Plan) lays out the process for shifting natural gas use in existing buildings toward clean, energy efficient all-electric buildings in accordance with the City’s climate and equity goals. The Plan provides a phased approach that includes new policies and programs, financing options, expanded rebates, and community education and outreach. The Plan will align with other citywide efforts to create affordable, safe, healthy and resilient housing and prepare the City to leverage grants and funds as they become available. 

Plan Adoption

The Plan was recommended for City Council adoption with edits by the Planning Board on September 12th and by the Public Utilities Board on September 19th.

The Plan is scheduled for adoption by the City Council on October 4th (Item 7-D).
