The ECO Scheme
ECO stands for Energy Company Obligation and it is to help people who are on a low income or come from vulnerable households to make energy saving improvements to their homes and, at the same time, help to lower energy consumption in the UK.
What is covered under the ECO scheme?
The ECO scheme covers a number of different improvements and here at Eco Target we do the following:
- Loft Insulation
- Cavity Wall Insulation
- Solid Wall Insulation
- Boiler replacement or repair
If you are eligible improvements like loft insulation, boilers and cavity wall insulation may be free. Solid wall insulation, whether it is internal or external, will require a contribution and can be done in conjunction with the Green Deal.
Am I eligible?
The ECO scheme is mainly for people who are on a low income or live in a vulnerable household. It isn’t completely straightforward or easy to work out whether or not you are eligible by
yourself – it depends if you are on benefits, or earn a low income, where you live and what type of improvements are recommended for your home.
The best thing to do is contact us through the email on this website and we can have a look at your circumstances and let you know.
