What is the government ECO4 Scheme?

The Energy Company Obligation (ECO) is a UK Government energy efficiency scheme to help reduce carbon emissions and tackle fuel poverty. It means that energy companies are obliged to fund energy efficiency measures for those who can least afford the upfront costs. Which is great news for householders who fit the grant criteria!

We provide energy efficiency measures under two grant schemes – ECO4, and ECO Flex.
