I work for a manufacturing company and reside
in New York. I am writing to express my concern with the legislative proposal
requiring most new commercial buildings be all-electric.
While I understand the intent, such legislation
would increase consumer costs, especially in colder, heating-dominated climates
like Upstate. Many New York families and businesses already struggle with
higher prices and pandemic-related challenges.
I am also concerned that if natural gas is eliminated,
energy availability and reliability will be significantly constrained. A diverse fuel portfolio makes sense for reliability. I would like to see a comprehensive study be conducted on the potential costs, technology, and necessary transition times.
Thank you for your time and
consideration of my comments.
