An article on the Sierra Club website, Transitioning California Off Gas Could Lower Costs and Prioritize Low-Income Communities, reviews a presentation given to the California Energy Commission by Energy and Environmental Economics (E3) called Draft Results: Future of Natural Gas Distribution in California, a 69-page graphic-rich presentation.

The Sierra Club review notes “For too long, California’s massive gas system has been the elephant in the room when policymakers talk about solutions to the climate crisis. But that’s beginning to change…. Building electrification is the lowest-cost and lowest-risk pathway for California to cut climate pollution.

Thanks to Joe Parsons from ClimateMaster for bringing this to our attention and Bill Martin of California GEO for his excellent ongoing work.
