What is ECO4 Scheme?

The ECO 4 scheme refers to the fourth phase of the Energy Company Obligation, a government scheme in the UK that aims to reduce carbon emissions and alleviate fuel poverty. This phase of the scheme is focused on improving the energy efficiency of homes across the country, particularly those occupied by low-income households.

Under the ECO 4 scheme, energy providers are required to invest in energy-saving measures such as insulation, upgrading inefficient boilers, and installing smart heating controls in homes that need it the most. These measures are designed to improve the energy efficiency of the home, reduce energy bills, and reduce the amount of harmful carbon emissions released into the atmosphere.

The ECO 4 scheme presents a great opportunity for homeowners who may not be able to afford energy-saving upgrades to their homes. Households that meet the eligibility criteria can apply to have these upgrades installed for free or at a significantly subsidized cost, making it easier for them to reduce their carbon footprint and energy bills.

Overall, the ECO 4 scheme is an important initiative that helps to improve the energy efficiency and affordability of homes while reducing carbon emissions. By investing in these energy-saving measures, we can help create a cleaner, greener future for all.
