About the ECO3 Scheme
The Energy Company Obligation (ECO) Scheme
The Energy Company Obligation scheme is a measure that was introduced by the British Government in order to address fuel poverty, reduce carbon emissions and improve energy efficiency.
The scheme works by requiring energy suppliers to fund the installation of energy efficiency measures in British households, the number of these installations is directly correlated to the respective energy supplier's market share.
A list of obligated suppliers is available on OFGEM's website, these energy suppliers work with installers such as ourselves to help enhance your home's energy efficiency through a range of measures including primary insulation measures such as loft and wall insulation or heating measures such as a new gas boiler or electrical storage heaters.
