As many of you have heard, the City of Vancouver has passed a Zero Emissions Building Plan.
This will increase costs in a city that’s already facing an affordability problem.
Vancouver residents will have limited choices on the appliances they use in their homes and businesses.
In the future, this could mean:
- No gas fireplaces
- No gas ranges
- No gas barbecues
- No gas furnaces
The elimination of these appliances will lead to job loss and force businesses (especially small, like ours) to downsize, or move to a less accessible location, or close up all together.
Councillor De Genova has issued a Motion on Notice (B.1) that is being voted on November 29th, 2016.
The motion moves to include natural gas as an acceptable form of energy in the Green Buildings report.
We at Vancouver Gas Fireplaces support Councillor De Genova’s motion, as it allows choices for business and homeowner’s, and will not lead to job losses.
