Backing all-electric homes for Victorians
23 organisations from across Victoria’s community, environment, energy, and health sectors have written to Minister Lily D’Ambrosio backing all-electric homes for Victoria.
The organisations congratulate the government on the recent decision to require that all new Victorian homes requiring a planning permit are all-electric from 1 January, 2024, and encourage ongoing action to electrify Victoria’s existing homes.
Ending new gas connections and retrofitting existing homes will cut energy bills, reduce emissions, and improve health, social equity, and energy security.
The Victorian government now has an opportunity to build on this important announcement with measures that will ensure all Victorians are included in the transition from gas to renewables.
