The ACT Government is introducing a regulation to prevent new gas network connections in late 2023. The regulation is an important step to get our city ready for an all-electric future and will prevent transition challenges as the ACT plans to phase out fossil fuel gas by 2045.

If you are building a new home, it is important that you consider choosing energy-efficient electric appliances and talk to your builder or architect now to build all-electric. Independent research shows that an all-electric home in Canberra would save about $9,000 in energy costs over 10 years.
