Energy Company Obligation (ECO)

Residents can apply for ECO 4 Flex funding to help pay for energy-saving measures for their homes.

Energy Company Obligation (ECO) is a government energy efficiency scheme. It aims to reduce heating costs for low-income, fuel-poor and vulnerable people.

Ofgem administers this for the Department of Business Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS).

Under ECO, energy suppliers offer funding to install energy-saving measures in your home.

The ECO4 scheme

The main aim of ECO4 is to improve the least energy-efficient homes.

ECO4 places a legal obligation on suppliers to reduce heating costs for low-income and vulnerable households by delivering energy efficiency and heating measures.

ECO4 will be a four-year scheme and is intended to run from July 2022 to March 2026.
