Victoria government ban gas connections to new homes from January 2024

Victoria government is taking strong stance on climate change and air pollution and it announced it will phase out gas connections in all new homes and government buildings from January 2024. The government said the move will help the state achieve its emissions targets, and building all electric home would cost less than having a gas connection, for it will save household up to $1000 annual energy bills and $2200 if having a solar panels. https://www.abc.net.au/news/2023-07-28/victoria-bans-gas-new-homes-housing-developments-emissions/102659636
