According to the most recent data, 48% of Half Moon Bay’s Greenhouse Gas Emissions come from energy use in buildings, with 80% of those emissions generated from natural gas and propane-powered energy. To help curb these emissions, work toward a cleaner environment, and assist the State in reaching SB32 goals, the City adopted a Building Electrification Ordinance on February 15, 2022 that:
Requires all new building construction to be electric-only – no gas or propane in new construction
Requires Fuel Gas lines are capped/decommissioned in existing buildings by 2045
