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. Energy companies with more than 250,000 household customers, including E.ON, British Gas, EDF Energy and Npower are all part of the scheme, set up to save people money on their energy bills, keep homes warmer and help reduce carbon emissions.

The scheme began in April 2013, and over time it has been amended. The latest changes to the scheme will apply to measures installed from 1st January 2019. The latest version of the scheme is termed ECO3.

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.

HHCRO (Home Heating Cost Reduction Obligation) means improvements are given to qualifying low-income and vulnerable households and therefore is based on the occupants.  Someone living in the property needs to receive one of the following:
