Montgomery County Residents Avoiding Higher Energy Costs
Here is a copy of the letter we will send to your lawmakers:
I do not support Montgomery County Council’s efforts to effectively ban access to natural gas for homes and businesses.
While environmental and climate solutions remain top of mind for residents, businesses, and other members of our community, having access to reliable and affordable energy must play a role in our choice as well.
Natural gas helps keep prices in check for Montgomery County residents with some of the lowest utility bills. Electrification throughout our county would force many to have to switch to electric appliances, which could be a costly expense upfront and through monthly utility bills.
We appreciate the choice of natural gas in our community. Cost remains top of mind for many, but reliability also plays a large role as well. Natural gas is reliable and not prone to the power outages that can often occur with electric energy service.
I urge you to listen to the voice of the community and consider the negative effects that this natural gas ban could have on our communities most vulnerable.
