I read this: "Now, Bellingham is looking to do something that no other city has yet attempted: adopt a ban on all residential heating by natural gas."
It's from this article: link
Without getting into an argument about climate change, I am curious as the viability of using a boiler that heats with electricity rather than natural gas.
It seem clear that operating costs would be higher, although efficiency would be higher. Of course any environmental benefit would depend on the source of the generated electricity.
Here in Illinois it would make little sense, but in states where wind / solar / hydro are used, it would be more viable. Such as Washington or Oregon.
