Launched back in 2013, the ECO3 scheme is designed to reduce the UK’s carbon emissions and support those living in fuel poverty.
Under this government legislation, UK energy companies are obligated to provide funding to low-income and vulnerable homes, and grants have been made available to aid the implementation of energy efficiency measures. These measures include:
- Air or ground source heat pumps
- Double or triple glazing
- Boiler replacements
- Energy smart meters
These grants are also accessible to landlords to improve rental properties, but before we get into that, let’s understand a little more about the role you have to play in the ECO3 scheme.
