The new regulations are part of the new building code adopted in January by Denver City Council. City officials claim commercial buildings are responsible for 49% of Denver’s greenhouse gas emissions. The article goes on to say....The city's Energize Denver ordinance, which the council approved in 2021, is but the latest in a string of measures at the state and local levels that seeks to quickly transition away from fossil-fired energy....that in 2027 the electrification requirements will only apply to new construction and replacement of failed or end-of-life heating and cooling systems in existing buildings. Building owners will not be required to remove and replace functioning units.
