Home Energy Conservation Act

First introduced in 1995, the Home Energy Conservation Act (HECA) places a duty on all local authorities to prepare and submit an annual progress report setting out:

“the energy conservations measures that the authority consider practicable, cost effective and likely to result in significant improvement in the energy efficiency of residential accommodation in the area”.
