Why establish reach codes?
Reach codes can help lower costs, improve internal air quality which can be helpful to people with certain respiratory conditions, lower the risk of fire, and reduce climate change pollution. We are working with the cities and the county to adopt codes that encourage the electrification of buildings and transportation. Through electrification, we can transition from burning natural gas and other fossil fuels to power provided by clean, carbon-free sources of electricity. As a result, residents, businesses—the entire community—benefit.
