All Electric Building Codes (Reach Codes)

The city of Petaluma is asking for community input on a proposal to require that new buildings use all electric systems and appliances.

These all-electric requirements – called reach codes – would prohibit the construction of natural gas infrastructure for new buildings, thereby preventing the use of gas-powered appliances in those buildings.
