California Looks To Zero Emissions Buildings As Next Climate Frontier

Assembly Bill 3001 (Bonta) proposes to update well-intended but outdated policies that have historically favored the use of fossil natural gas as the fuel of choice to heat our buildings and hot water.

Assembly Bill 3232 (Friedman) aims to cut climate pollution from the building sector in half by 2030, and to require all new buildings to zero out their carbon emissions by 2030, meaning they would generate enough solar power to offset their annual energy-related emissions.
