“All Electric Construction: A Good Deal” details the cost saving opportunity for constructing new homes to be all-electric and avoiding gas pipeline extensions.
All-electric building codes lead to lower construction costs in Minnesota by encouraging developers to bypass the cost and complexity of installing new gas lines. These homes have roughly the same utility bills as mixed-fuel homes, which use both gas and electricity. Those savings are projected to improve over time as gas prices rise.
