Instructions for Testifying
What Is H.3694, An Act Relative To The Clean Heat Standard? A Clean Heat Standard is a policy by which projects that reduce a buildings emission earn “Clean Heat Credits”, by installing insulation or switching from fossil fuel heating to a heat pump.
It would require gas utilities, heating oil dealers, and propane dealers to either help their customers reduce their emissions, buy Clean Heat credits from building owners who reduced their emissions or pay into a fund the state would use to help low-income households reduce their emissions.
This bill would play a critical role in helping the state reduce its building emissions by providing households and buildings with incentives to move away from fossil fuel heating. Read more about the bill here.
Please support this bill by following the steps above before July 13th! Thank you!
