Below are details of proposed changes a western state is using to approach carbon based equipment. It is anticipated other states will follow in similar legislation. Boilers that fire by oil or gas would be regarded as a low preference for air conditioning, heat or energy to run office and production facilities. An electric powered boiler would be a favored power source. At Reimers a wide selection of steam and water boilers are available to meet the new rules that are coming. Electric Steam Boilers

Buildings are energy-intensive; nearly 40% of all U.S. energy consumption comes in some form from the residential and commercial sectors, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration. In response, Sen. Dave Cortese, D-San Jose, filed this suite of bills in hopes of decarbonizing California's built environment.
SB 30, SB 31 and SB 32 would, respectively, require that state buildings be carbon-neutral by 2035, create a decarbonization program through the California Public Utilities Commission and California Energy Commission, and mandate that cities and counties update their general plans to include a pathway toward decarbonizing their buildings.
When he announced the package, Cortese argued that “all-electric buildings cost less to build, require less infrastructure, and provide more value to builders as well as customers. California must commit to the rapid decarbonization of our buildings to remain a global leader in the face of our climate crisis.”
