Residential Energy Conservation Ordinance (RECO)
The goal of the City of Chico’s Residential Retrofit Program is to increase the energy efficiency of Chico’s older housing stock. The Program requires property owners to upgrade certain energy and water conservation measures on residential property before being sold or transferred.
