ECO funding changes – April 1st 2017

Do you now Qualify for ECO Funding?

Over 1 million homes will now be eligible.  The expanded criteria under the Government backed ECO Scheme, allows far more homes to take advantage.

There’s no catch. ECO (The Energy Company Obligation) is a government backed, energy efficiency programme that provides support for energy efficiency measures.

Energy Alliance are supporting the energy providers in achieving their obligations (ECO). These are set by the government as part of the domestic energy efficiency programme.

How do I Find Out More?

All you have to do is contact our friendly team who will ask you a few questions.

Next, based on your information and our assessment of your property, we will then advise you. We will discuss measures suitable for your home and how much help you are likely to receive.

Unlike previously, many homes who didn’t qualify as their household income was too high will now be able to get funding to replace their old, inefficient Oil or LPG Boilers. You can check out the new eligibility table here to see if the changes affect you.

Furthermore, don’t forget that a brand new ‘A’ rated boiler can save you up to £365 per year based on a detached home (data from the Energy Saving Trust).

Finally, we don’t want you to miss out – as the funding won’t be around forever.  There has never been a better time to upgrade your home.
