Help to improve your private housing

Energy company obligation

Some householders in privately-rented or owner-occupied properties, who are on benefits or low incomes, may qualify for home insulation and heating improvements through the Energy Company Obligation (ECO).

The Energy Company Obligation (ECO) is a government energy efficiency scheme in Great Britain to help reduce carbon emissions and tackle fuel poverty.

The government has published information that tells you how you can find out if you may be eligible – go to GOV.UK: get help to keep your home warm.
