The Responsible Energy Codes Alliance is a program of the Alliance to Save Energy that includes a broad coalition of building product manufacturers, trade associations, regional efficiency organizations, and advocates for efficiency and sustainability that participate in the development, adoption, and implementation of improved building energy codes nationwide. RECA has been involved in the development and adoption of the IECC (and its predecessor the Model Energy Code) in jurisdictions across the country for over two decades.
RECA members believe that a single nationwide building energy efficiency code is in the best interest of building and homeowners, operators and builders, manufacturers, and the general public welfare. The IECC is endorsed by the United States Department of Energy and its most recent version is the most up-to-date model energy efficiency code for buildings across the nation. The IECC establishes reasonable energy efficient minimum construction requirements for all buildings.
While adoption of an earlier version of the IECC is better than no energy code at all, RECA strongly recommends that all jurisdictions adopt or upgrade to the most recent IECC, without substantive local weakening amendments.
RECA’s primary mission is to promote the adoption, implementation, and enforcement of the most recent version of the IECC nationwide.
