What Is ECO 3 Funding?

ECO is the abbreviation of the Energy Companies Obligations which was approved by Parliament in December 2012 with the passing of the The Electricity and Gas (Energy Companies Obligation) Order 2012.

There are three Energy Companies Obligations: the Carbon Saving Obligation, the Community Carbon Saving Obligation and the Affordable Warmth Obligation.

The new ECO Scheme 'ECO 3' started on the 1st October 2018 enabling homeowners in the UK to access funding for FREE boilers and insulation measures such as cavity wall insulation and underfloor insulation.

Where does the money come from for the Grants?

The Government has set carbon emission reduction targets for energy suppliers such as British Gas, EDF Energy, E-On UK, Scottish Power and SSE and fines can be levied for failure to meet these targets.

As part of their efforts to meet carbon emission targets, energy suppliers agreed to make up to £1.3 billion per year available (to March 2015) to pay for new electric storage heaters, energy efficient boilers, cavity wall insulation, solid wall insulation and loft insulation in certain households.

The original ECO Scheme was due to end in March 2015 but was extended to 31st March 2017. A new ECO Scheme started on the 1st October 2018 which has been opened up to a lot more people as more credits are now eligible on this scheme.
