20mar6:15 pmRally for Gas-Free Buildings in Beacon and Beyond

Event Details

On Monday, the Beacon City Council will pass legislation to require all-electric construction for all new buildings in Beacon. The law requires all-electric construction for all new buildings and major renovations starting in 2024, and mirrors language in the statewide All-Electric New Building Act proposed with 83 co-sponsors in Albany. The legislation’s passage makes Beacon the first Hudson Valley municipality with a ban on fossil fuels in new construction; the third statewide after Ithaca and New York City.

Please join Beacon Climate Action Now (BCAN) and Food & Water Watch at our rally to celebrate this win and use it to pressure Governor Hochul and the State Legislature to include a similar electrification mandate in the state budget due next month.

The City Council meeting in which they vote on the bill will follow the rally at 7pm.
