ECO Grants

The ECO scheme aims to help tenants and homeowners reduce carbon emissions and tackle fuel poverty. We provide assessments, completion of work and funder submission.

Energy Company Obligation

ECO Grants support energy improvements such as

  • insulating lofts and cavity walls

  • upgrading boilers

  • installing alternative sources of energy, such as solar power


An Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating determines whether a home is eligible for the ECO3 Scheme.

When a property is built, sold, or rented, the government requires an EPC, which comprises the data on the energy use and typical energy expenses of the property, as well as advice for saving money by reducing energy use.

The ECO 3 scheme is available for properties with an EPC rating of E or below.

ECO3 funding is also available for those who are claiming benefits, allowances, or credits. Only certain benefits are eligible. The recipient must be living in the property.


The government has also suggested enacting an ECO4 'minimum requirement,' which would force properties with an EPC rating of F or G to meet at least band D after upgrades.

This also applies to properties with an EPC band of D or E that must be upgraded to an EPC band of C. Partially deflated project scores may be given to projects that do not meet these conditions.

This is all part of the government's strategy towards achieving the goal of upgrading as many energy inefficient homes as possible to EPC band C by 2030.
