The Hidden subsidy for the fossil fuel industry in the Building Code that costs homeowners thousands

Did you know the building code forces people to connect a new house to the gas network? The question is why?  Getting a house connected to the gas network costs $2,000 + additional plumbing and that’s before you’ve bought any (always inefficient) gas appliances.  This is great for gas fitters but what about home owners.  What if you want all your services to be electric and you want to power those services with your roof-top solar system or solar + batteries in the future?
