What's ECO Funding?


New boiler grant
ECO means Energy Company Obligation. This is a little bit of government legislation that runs alongside the new Green Deal scheme and is made to help low-income and vulnerable households install energy saving improvements for their homes. ECO Funding can cover costly improvements that might not otherwise belong to the Green Deal golden rule, which states that the amount being saved must outweigh the expense of the whole shebang. You can find four main improvements that ECO Funding is meant for:


New boiler grant
 Cavity wall insulation

 Solid wall insulation (internal or external)

 Loft insulation

 Heating improvement

The ECO scheme will explain to you three different categories:

CERO: Carbon Emission Reduction Obligation



Primarily for hard-to-treat homes including period properties, either public or private, that can't use the standard methods of insulation. Probably the most likely improvements will probably be solid wall insulation or cavity wall insulation designed specifically for older structures.

CSCO: Carbon Saving Community Obligation



This section of the scheme is made for those living in specific areas, offering insulation and heating improvements. Your individual circumstances aren't considered, where exactly you live.

HHCRO: Warming Cost Reduction Obligation



Especially for those found on low-incomes or who already receive certain qualifying benefits, HHCRO will offer you any measures which help reduce the household's heating costs. Check your HHCRO eligibility now.
