The Energy Company Obligation
The Energy Company Obligation (ECO) is a UK-wide scheme that helps low income and vulnerable households make their homes more energy efficient.
The scheme will advise you:
- If your energy supplier can offer improvements for free
- If your supplier may fund part of the improvement and ask you to pay some of the cost yourself
You do not have to make the improvements or pay more than you want to.

Some local authorities can help pay for energy efficiency improvements.
To check if your local council offers these grants or loans, find your local council website.
