The government ECO Scheme (Energy Company Obligation) was first introduced in 2013. It requires larger energy companies to allocate a portion of their profits to help fund energy-efficient measures in UK homes.
We are in the 4th period of the obligation which is referred to as ECO3 and is an evolution of the previous ECO, ECO2 and ECO2t schemes. We are also ready for ECO4.
ECO3 is comprised entirely of a single obligation. The Home Heating Cost Reduction Obligation (HHCRO) incorporates: the replacement of broken heating systems, the upgrade of inefficient heating systems, and the installation of insulation, to reduce home heating costs for low income, fuel poor and vulnerable people.
Measures that can be funded include:
Broken or inefficient boilers or electric storage heaters
Room in roof insulation
Cavity wall insulation
Flat roof insulation
Air Source Heat Pumps
Solid wall insulation
First Time Central Heating
7-day payment terms available*
