ECO 3 Funding

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.

One of the schemes objectives is to replace inefficient or broken heating systems and upgrade insulation measures.

To qualify for ECO funding you need to be on a benefit or tax credit - most qualify; including child benefit. 

If you are not on a benefit, you may still be eligible through LA Flex Funding.
