The Eugene City Council is proposing a forced electrification policy for new homes when the city's own analysis estimates it will only save 0.1% of emissions by 2037.
Over the last several years, NW Natural has provided the city with five different emission reduction proposals that would address that gap – and more. These proposals were rejected. So, we are left to wonder, is the real goal of the Eugene City Council to reduce emissions or is it to ban natural gas in new homes, no matter what?
Polling shows 75% of Eugene voters – the Council's constituents – do not support policies that remove energy choice.
