Eco4 Scheme

The ECO4 scheme, also known as the Energy Company Obligation, is a government-funded initiative in Great Britain that helps improve the energy efficiency of homes and reduce fuel poverty. It is run by energy companies, who are obliged to deliver a certain amount of energy efficiency measures to their customers each year.

The scheme is focused on helping low-income households and those living in the least energy-efficient homes (bands D to G on the EPC rating). It provides grants for a variety of energy-saving measures, such as:

  • Loft insulation
  • Cavity wall insulation
  • Solid wall insulation
  • New heating systems (boilers, heat pumps)
  • Solar panels
  • Draught-proofing measures

The amount of grant you can get depends on your circumstances, but it can cover up to 100% of the cost of the measures.

The ECO4 scheme is a great way to make your home more energy-efficient, save money on your energy bills, and reduce your carbon footprint. If you think you might be eligible, you can check with your energy company or visit the ECO4 website for more information.

Here are some of the benefits of the ECO4 scheme:

  • Reduces energy bills: By making your home more energy-efficient, you can save money on your heating and cooling costs.
  • Improves comfort: A more energy-efficient home is more comfortable to live in, as it is less draughty and easier to heat.
  • Reduces carbon emissions: By using less energy, you can help to reduce your carbon footprint and combat climate change.
  • Increases the value of your home: A more energy-efficient home is more valuable to sell or rent.
