Energy Company Obligation (ECO)

Extra warmth for your home at no extra cost

We’re upgrading home warmth across the UK as part of the Government’s Energy Company Obligation (ECO) Scheme.

ECO was launched in 2013 by the government to help eligible people stay warm, save energy and lower their energy bills through subsidised energy-saving improvements.

The main home improvement that we'll install under the ECO scheme, is cavity wall insulation – we’re talking £1,000s worth of a free upgrades, and you don't have to be an E.ON customer to benefit.
