The Energy Company Obligation explained

The Energy Company Obligation (ECO) in the UK is a government energy efficiency scheme designed to tackle fuel poverty and reduce carbon emissions. The ECO scheme works by placing a Home Heating Cost Reduction Obligation (HHCRO) on medium and large energy suppliers. Under HHCRO, obligated suppliers must promote measures that improve the ability of low-income, fuel-poor, and vulnerable households to heat their homes. This includes actions that result in reduced energy usage, such as installing insulation or upgrading a heating system. The ECO4 scheme, which is the latest iteration, applies to measures installed from 1 April 2022 and will cover a four-year period until 31 March 2026.

To qualify for ECO funding, homeowners typically need to meet specific eligibility criteria, such as receiving certain benefits, having a boiler that is over 10 years old, and owning their own home. 

Help in your home

Under the ECO scheme, large and medium-sized energy suppliers are required to pay for the installation of measures to improved energy efficiency in British households. These suppliers have a target based on their domestic energy market share in the UK.

Obligated suppliers operate with installers to introduce efficiency measures into British homes. These include heating measures and wall or loft insulation.

Understanding the HHCRO

This policy, known as the Home Heating Cost Reduction Obligation or The Affordable Warmth Obligation, is aimed at ensuring that energy suppliers promote the installation and use of measures that enable people to make financial savings when it comes to their energy bills.

Are you eligible for an ECO central heating grant?

Households receiving Child Tax Credit may be eligible for an ECO4 central heating grant if they meet the income requirements. The ECO4 scheme provides grants for insulation, heating, and other measures to help households reduce their energy bills. To be eligible for these grants, if you only claim Child Tax Credit, you must meet the Child Tax Credit income requirements. The income thresholds for Child Tax Credit recipients to qualify for ECO4 grants are based on the number of children and whether the claimant is a single claimant or a member of a couple. The income thresholds are as follows:

  • Single claimant:
    • 1 child: £19,900
    • 2 children: £24,800
    • 3 children: £29,600
    • 4+ children: £34,500
  • Member of a couple:
    • 1 child: £27,500
    • 2 children: £32,300
    • 3 children: £37,200
    • 4+ children: £42,000

If the annual income of the household falls below these thresholds, they may be eligible for the ECO4 central heating grant.

Don’t often do reviews but felt this warranted one. A little slow getting the fitting date sorted out but once this had been sorted everything was plain sailing from start to finish. Can’t fault the engineer who fitted my combi boiler. Nothing was to much trouble to him, explained everything has he went along. Would recommend without hesitation.

The old boiler and tank were removed and the new condensing boiler fitted by the two installers from XL Heating. They were friendly, informative and tidy, working well as a team for two days. So far very happy.
