Everything You Need to Know about ECO

Energy Company Obligation

The Energy Company Obligation was launched in 2013 by the UK Government to tackle carbon emissions and fuel poverty. Since the 2013 over 3 million measures have been installed and over 644,000 boilers have been installed.

Our Government work with The Office of Gas and Electricity Markets (Ofgem), who administer the ECO scheme and keep a record of all of the measures that are installed under the scheme.

Measures can vary from insulation in your home, to the installation of a boiler. We currently only cover the installation of ECO-approved boilers, but please speak to your account manager about insulation.
