This new regulation affects over 10,000 buildings in the city. Existing boilers must switch from #6 oil to a cleaner fuel before their current permits expire starting in 2012 and no later than 2015. By 2030, existing boilers, not yet replaced, must be modified to meet the equivalent emissions of burning clean #2 oil or natural gas. Newly installed boilers must only burn clean No. 2 oil, natural gas or its emission equivalent.
