Energy companies obligation

The Energy Company Obligation (ECO) is a requirement by the government on the bigger energy companies to help provide energy efficiency measures for low income households and properties that are harder to treat. If you are eligible, you can get this help from any energy supplier, whether or not they supply energy to you. Find out more about the scheme. You may also call Healthy Homes Ealing to learn if you qualify for ECO funding on 0800 083 2265.

Measures included in the ECO scheme include:

  • Insulation (for example, cavity wall, loft, solid wall insulation - internal solid wall and external solid wall)
  • Heating controls
  • First time central heating
  • Non-gas boilers
  • Electric storage heaters
  • Renewable heating

If you are a tenant or a leaseholder you will need the agreement of the landlord before you can have any work done.

Landlords may also apply under the scheme; however, replacement or repair of broken heating systems is the responsibility of the landlord. If you are a landlord, you will need the agreement of the tenant or leaseholder before you can have any work done.
