I understand this scheme is still running as the details of the ECO4 have not come out yet.

Does anyone know of an installer in the TQ Devon area I could contact, please? I am having difficulty securing one to survey some of my properties.

The Energy Company Obligation (ECO) is a government energy efficiency scheme in Great Britain to tackle fuel poverty and help reduce carbon emissions.

How ECO works

Under ECO, medium and larger energy suppliers fund the installation of energy efficiency measures in British households.

Each obligated supplier has an overall target based on its share of the domestic energy market in Britain.

The obligated energy suppliers work with installers to introduce certain efficiency measures into your home, such as loft or wall insulation, or heating measures.

The ECO4 scheme consists of one distinct obligation: the Home Heating Cost Reduction Obligation (HHCRO).

The obligation explained

The Home Heating Cost Reduction Obligation requires energy suppliers to promote the installation of measures that lead to financial savings on energy bills, such as the installation of insulation and heating measures.

You are eligible for ECO if you are a core group customer from scheme year 12 onwards under the Warm Home Discount Scheme or you receive at least one of the following benefits and satisfy the relevant income requirements, where applicable:

  • Child Benefit
  • Pension Guarantee Credit
  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance (ESA)
  • Income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance (JSA)
  • Income Support
  • Tax Credits (Child Tax Credits and Working Tax Credits)
  • Universal Credit
  • Housing benefit
  • Pension credit saving credit

Local authorities are also able to refer residents in their areas to obligated energy suppliers so that they can be offered support under the scheme.

Energy suppliers themselves are also able to refer households where they are either struggling with persistent fuel debt and are supported by suppliers, or are using pre-payment meters (PPM) and have regularly been unable to stay connected to their fuel supplies due to financial hardship.
