About ECO Funding
How could it be free?
The Energy Company Obligation (ECO) is a Government energy efficiency scheme in Great Britain to help reduce carbon emissions and tackle fuel poverty.
The scheme began in April 2013, and over time it has been amended. The latest changes to the scheme occurred in 2017 and apply to measures installed from 1 April 2017. The latest version of the scheme is termed ECO2t.
It is called the Energy Company Obligation as it is funded by the energy companies. Essentially, money from them is put into a pot to be used to install energy efficiency measures, such as Cavity Wall Insulation, for those who are eligible for it. There are currently two parts to ECO Funding; HHCRO and CERO.
HHCRO (Home Heating Cost Reduction Obligation) means improvements are given to qualifying low-income and vulnerable households and therefore is based on the occupants.
CERO (Carbon Emissions Reduction Obligation) means the funding is provided to all households in any housing tenure so the funding is not based on the owner or occupant of the house but the property itself. This is the obligation GHE work under.
If your property falls under the right criteria, you could get Cavity Wall Insulation fully funded (free) under CERO. To see if your property qualifies just get in touch! Or if you don’t have time for a phone call, fill out the form below and we can let you know.
