MOBILIZE NOW TO OPPOSE HB 2667: Attack on our Energy Code 

HB 2667 would remove goals that guide the State’s energy code, delay implementation of the 2018 residential energy code, and direct the State Building Code Council to amend the update by Jan 2021 to be less efficient - and it is receiving a hearing next Wednesday!

This bill is a direct threat to climate progress we need now.  Reach out to your Representatives and members of the House Local Government Committee to let them know that the residential energy code updates that were approved through the SBCC process are viable and necessary. The state climate goals that are threatened by this bill are fundamental to Washington’s progress to reduce emissions from the building sector.
 
Take Action!

NEW BILL: HOME HEATING ELECTRIFICATION   

HB 2586 / SB 6496 would allow public utilities to provide incentives to customers that upgrade to efficient electric heat sources or other electric appliances, regardless of whether they are currently using gas, oil, or electricity to heat their homes. More info can be found in this policy one-pager from Climate Solutions.
