Questions and complaints

The agency behind Gen Less, the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Authority (EECA), is committed to delivering first class services. If you think we are not meeting this standard, we would like to hear from you so we can put things right.

You can telephone, email or write to us.

Contact us

We ask for your contact details so we can respond directly to you. However if you wish to make a complaint anonymously it will be treated with the same level of importance.

We will advise you in writing when your complaint has been received and endeavour to respond within 24 hours, although complex issues where we need to work with others may take longer.

We take all questions and complaints seriously and will ensure you are treated with respect.
