Efforts to electrify homes are driving Dominion Energy and National Grid, two of the country’s largest utilities, to consider selling off some of the methane gas pipelines, the Wall Street Journal reports. Electrifying buildings is key to cutting climate pollution from methane gas extraction, transportation, and combustion. A growing number of municipalities are pursuing policies to electrify their building stock and awareness of the significant health hazards caused by gas stoves is growing. The Brattle Group estimates as much as $180 billion of U.S. methane gas distribution infrastructure could become stranded assets as the transition away from fossil fuels continues.
