Woke San Francisco Liberals Just Banned Gas Furnaces and Water Heaters and They Are Coming for YOURS, Too

The first liberal shoe has dropped in the ban on gas stoves in San Francisco where left-wing regulators have banned the gas-fueled furnaces and water heaters from being sold in the Bay Area.

The city has now passed a rule to force building and home owners to install electric furnaces and water heaters starting in 2027, meaning that if a building owner has a gas-fueled appliance that needs to be replaced, they’ll have to go electric from that point forward, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

Bay Area regulators voted Wednesday to adopt rules to phase out the sale and installation of natural-gas furnaces and water heaters over the next eight years, one of the most ambitious plans in the country to replace gas appliances with electric alternatives.

The rules, approved by the Bay Area Air Quality Management District, are meant to reduce air pollution from some of the worst home-appliance offenders. The main pollutants targeted are nitrogen oxides, or NOx, which can cause acid rain and smog as well as increase risk for asthma and other respiratory diseases.

People will be able to repair their gas appliances if they break — but the rules take effect when existing gas-powered furnaces or water heaters no longer work and need to be replaced. New construction will also be required to have zero-NOx — effectively, electric — furnaces and water heaters.

So far, the rule does not apply to gas stoves or clothes dryers.

Yet.

Will this presidential election be the most important in American history?

You know damn well the rules will be expanded in the very near future. They always are.

Meanwhile, 200,000 residents have been without power for days on the tail of wind and rain storms. And this happens frequently.

Yet, SanFran regulators want to add millions more electrical devices to the load. Makes sense, huh?

Oh, and California is among the top five states with the highest electric costs in the nation.

You’ll recall that all the so-called “fact-checkers” all insisted last month that Biden and the Democrats were not looking to ban gas-fueled appliances like this.

They lied.

We also know that this is only the left’s first move. They will soon expand this to New York, then Illinois and Massachusetts, then everywhere else if they can.
