What is it?
The ECO (Energy Company Obligation) is a government energy efficiency scheme across the UK. It requires energy suppliers to fund energy efficiency improvements to domestic properties, focusing on vulnerable households and those most likely to be impacted by fuel poverty. Under ECO4, companies like Eclipse Energy are able to access this funding, deliver energy efficiency measures such as insulation and heating upgrades to low-income households and properties that are hard to treat. The scheme aims to reduce carbon emissions and tackle fuel poverty.
How Do I Qualify?
You will qualify for this funding if anyone living in your property is in receipt of one of the below benefits. You do not need to own your property to qualify, although we will need permission from your landlord to carry out the work.
If you don’t receive any of the above benefits but have a household income less than £31,000 per year, you may still qualify.
What Home Improvements Can I Receive?
ECO4 takes a ‘whole house approach’ and does not focus on one particular home improvement. Instead, a surveyor looks at all the features of your house and can help you access several of the below measures to make the largest energy savings. In certain properties it is possible to receive 4 or even 5 of these measures at the same time, with no customer contribution.
The funding towards these measures will improve your homes’ energy efficiency, protecting you against rising energy costs. In addition, these measures will work to eliminate issues like condensation, damp, and mould. Our team of expert surveyors can advise you on the best measures to reduce your bills, cut your carbon footprint, and improve your home.
