California is set to phase out new natural gas furnaces and heaters by 2030 after a proposal from the California Air Resources Board (CARB) was passed, making it the first US state to take such action.

The proposal, included in the 2022 State Implementation Plan (SIP) Strategy, is to combat nitrogen oxide pollution in the state - homes and buildings generate four times more ozone than all of California's gas power plants combined.

The plan, however, will cost about $96.2 billion to enforce and new homeowners will have to pay for expensive electrical options moving forward.

The report comes just a month after California announced a ban on the sale of new gas-powered cars.

The ban means all new homes and buildings will no longer feature gas-fueled furnaces and heaters

CARB Chair Liane Randolph said in a statement: 'While this strategy will clean the air for all Californians, it will also lead to reduced emissions in the many low-income and disadvantaged communities that experience greater levels of persistent air pollution.

'But to truly meet the ozone standard, California needs more federal action to clean up harmful diesel pollution from primarily federally controlled sources, from locomotives and ocean-going vessels to aircraft, which are all concentrated in communities that continue to bear the brunt of poor air quality.

'We simply cannot provide clean air to Californians without the federal government doing its part.'

The new ban is part of California Govern Gavin Newson's climate push and aims to abide by the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) regulations to limit ozone in the atmosphere to 70 parts per billion - 21 million people living in the state exceed this standard.
