Energy Company Obligations (ECO)

Under the ECO, medium and larger energy suppliers fund the installation of energy efficiency measures in British households.

We have signed a Statement of Intent, which means that under the 'flexible eligibility' element of the ECO we can seek further support for certain households whose health is put at risk by living in a cold home.
