Climate change is a profound threat to New York. As architects, engineers, building management staff, designers, and energy efficiency and construction industry professionals we are committed to practical solutions to this manifest threat. It is in that spirit that we applaud your proposal to end gas usage in new construction. However, deferring the start date of new all-electric requirements to as late as 2027 is too extended. We urge you and the Legislature to enact S6843A/A8431 (Kavanagh/Gallagher), which would end gas usage in new construction beginning at the end of 2023.
