What Is ECO4?

The Energy Company Obligation (ECO) scheme, a UK government-backed initiative introduced in 2013, aims to enhance the energy efficiency of homes throughout the country.

As part of the ECO initiative, energy suppliers are mandated to implement cost-effective energy-saving solutions in some of the UK’s most vulnerable properties, ensuring affordability for eligible homeowners.

These solutions encompass a range of measures such as insulation, heat pumps, boiler replacements, and solar panels. While some installations may require a nominal fee, many upgrades are provided free of charge.

Since its inception in 2013, the ECO (The Energy Company Obligation) scheme has successfully implemented over 3.6 million energy-efficient measures in more than 2.4 million homes across the UK, with wall insulation being a prevalent benefit.
