Appeals process added to city’s ordinance requiring new buildings to be all-electric

Sacramento has decided to assure blackouts in the future and make its city a Third world country, like Cuba.  That is a country where electricity is rationed.  Since Sacramento is not supporting oil drilling, fracking or coal—just solar and wind as energy sources, there will not be enough energy to power all the EV’s the city is mandating and the all electric homes.

In the end it will also cause businesses to close and leave town.  Would you stay as a family or business if energy was very expensive and not stable?  This is how Sacramento will depopulate—ration energy.

Cheap gas versus expensive alternative electricity: “The City of Sacramento said it added an appeals process to the ordinance requiring new buildings to run on electricity instead of gas. 

Buildings with three or fewer stories will need to meet the electrification requirements beginning 2023, and buildings taller than that will need to meet them starting 2026.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KTXL) — The City of Sacramento said it added an appeals process to the ordinance requiring new buildings to run on electricity instead of gas. 

Buildings with three or fewer stories will need to meet the electrification requirements beginning 2023, and buildings taller than that will need to meet them starting 2026. 

Those requirements do not affect existing buildings. And in some cases, it could also not apply to certain parts of new buildings. According to the city, there will be limited exemptions for building permit applications filed on or before Dec. 31, 2025:

  • A limited exemption for ground floor food establishments for cooking equipment only.
  • A limited exemption for manufacturing process loads only within a manufacturing or industrial facility.
  • A limited exemption for regulated affordable housing when virtual net energy metering is not available, for water heating only.

An Infeasibility Waiver Process was also added to exempt new buildings from being all-electric. In order to be exempt, it would have to be shown that a portion of the building would not be able to be powered only by electricity.

  1. It is vastly more expensive to build and operate….but that is ok after all who wants affordable housing.

    Why not hammer gas? So. Cal. Gas has perfected a zero carbon hybrid gas currently being used.

    But heck that is just reality and Dem’s ignore reality when it destroys Socialism.

  2. Paint Brush says

    When over 50%of the people don’t vote, don’t attend or write letters to object to what is going on, don’t care about politics or their civic responsibility as required by our Constitution…we get apathy, and apathy begets Socialism.
    Apathy is the perfect medium for the evils of Socialism to be brought in by power and control seekers. They lie and tell us that if we just trust them, everyone will be happy. What they are really saying is you will be have nothing and be happy.
    Too many people stand around waiting for someone else to do something. This threat is going to take all of us waking up and doing our civil duty to stamp out the evils of Socialism from our schools and government.

  3. Paint Brush is correct! Apathy is the problem and it is encouraged with the distrust of elections. Nothing changes. I have wondered why we have such draconian gun control laws with several million gun owners in the State. They could have ousted the gun control legislators, but were too apathetic or lazy to vote.

  4. Conservatives are indeed apathetic and depressed, but so far, they do vote. The trouble is there are not enough conservatives in California to make ANY meaningful difference, and soon, if this Supreme Court hearing finds that there is no judicial oversight on gerrymanders that wipe out all Republican electors in California, no conservative will bother to vote at all. Republicans have never been willing to adopt the real dirty tricks of the leftists, ballot harvesting in nursing homes and memory care facilities, assisting in dumping of ballots in certain electoral districts and the like. This type of fraud is just not discoverable! If the conservatives were to do all the illegal things that the leftists espouse because the “ends justify the means” then we may have a chance at having some representation in this State. But they won’t. End of story. On the housing, builders should abandon California entirely — if no new housing could be built, California might be forced to retreat from its anti-gas posture.
