What is ECO3 and how can I claim my free grant?

We at Captain Green wanted to dedicate this blog post to discuss an important scheme; the Energy Company Obligation. The Energy Company Obligation (ECO) is a government energy efficiency scheme in Great Britain which aims to tackle fuel poverty and help reduce carbon emissions.

Under the ECO scheme, medium and larger energy suppliers fund the installation of energy efficiency measures in British households. The obligated energy suppliers then work with various installers to introduce certain efficiency measures into your home. These measures range from insulation services to various heating measures. 

The ECO3 scheme consists of one distinct obligation: the Home Heating Cost Reduction Obligation (HHCRO). This requires energy suppliers to promote the installation of measures that result in savings on energy bills such as the installation of insulation and heating measures. You are eligible to qualify for an ECO grant if you are a core customer from the Warm Home Discount Scheme or you receive at least one of the following benefits and satisfy the relevant income criteria:

  • Armed Forces Independence Payment
  • Attendance Allowance
  • Carer’s Allowance
  • Child Benefit (on the condition that the household’s relevant income does not exceed the amount set out in Chapter 3 of our scheme guidance)
  • Constant Attendance Allowance
  • Disability Living Allowance
  • Pension Guarantee Credit
  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance (ESA)
  • Income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance (JSA)
  • Income Support
  • Industrial Injuries Disablement Benefit
  • Mobility Supplement
  • Personal Independence Payment
  • Severe Disablement Allowance
  • Tax Credits (Child Tax Credits and Working Tax Credits)
  • Universal Credit

There are a wide range of benefits available from installing ECO measures in your home, these include:

  • Free ECO grants are available from the government
  • Guaranteed to save money on your energy bills
  • ECO measures are better for the environment
  • Create a warmer household environment
