ECO4 Scheme

What is ECO4?

The ECO4 scheme is the latest government funding initiative designed to assist homes suffering from fuel poverty, characterized by a lack of insulation and inefficient heat sources.

By embracing renewable energy solutions, you become less reliant on grid-supplied energy created by burning fossil fuels. Instead, you can harness the power of free energy generated by the sun, resulting in potential energy bill savings of up to 70% while reducing your carbon footprint and positively impacting global warming.

This is a government backed grant, meaning you won’t have to pay it back.

Fill out our form below and our energy specialist will contact you.

The following measures are available on ECO4:

  • Internal wall insulation
  • Cavity wall insulation
  • Loft insulation
  • Room in roof insulation
  • Solar PV panels
  • Air-Source Heat Pump
  • Non-Condensing Boiler Replacement
  • Replacement storage heaters
  • First Time Central Heating

How does ECO work?

ECO4 is a current government energy scheme that mandates large energy companies like EDF, British Gas, and nPower to finance energy-saving measures like insulation, renewable energy, and low carbon efficient heating systems in people’s homes.

Who Qualifies?

You will qualify if you are on are in receipt of one of the following benefits:

If you are not the homeowner, the landlord must agree to the proposed measures to be installed. Landlords are likely to welcome these changes, as they can increase the property’s Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating and value while also providing them with valuable green credentials.

Why? What’s the catch?

The Energy Act of 2010 gave the government the responsibility to reduce the country’s carbon footprint. In response, the government created a number of schemes to achieve this goal, including ECO4. ECO4 provides most of the funding for low-carbon heating systems, high-quality insulation, and renewable energy. There are no hidden costs, and you just need to have a qualifying benefit or be in a low-income household to be eligible for the scheme.

What Is The Process?

Thankfully, the process of obtaining funding for energy-saving measures has become much simpler than in the past. Homeowners or tenants can contact us to determine their eligibility for funding based on whether they have a qualifying benefit or are from a low-income household.

Before carrying out any measures, a survey of the home is conducted with the landlord’s permission. Typically, the entire process takes between 14 and 21 days.
