ECO3 Boiler Grants
What are ECO3 Boiler Grants?
The Energy Company Obligation (ECO) was passed in Parliament in 2012 and runs until 2022. Funded by the UK’s largest utility companies, the scheme is part of the Home Heating Carbon Reduction Obligation (HHRCO) and contributes to the UK’s carbon reduction targets. It aims to provide private homeowners and private renters on qualifying benefits to receive both a free boiler and free insulation through ECO3 boiler grants, with the overarching aim to reduce fuel poverty amongst low-income households.
What are the Main Obligations?
The ECO policy is entirely formed from one obligation – the Home Heating Cost Reduction Obligation (HHCRO). Click here to understand more about the HHCRO.
