ECO Funding Supplies Energy Efficient Measures to Low Income or Vulnerable Households

ECO-FundingThe Energy Company Obligation (ECO) is a government initiative to provide certain households that qualify under particular criteria with grants to save on energy bills and cut their carbon emissions. The scheme ensures the larger energy providers supply efficient energy measures to the UK’s low income or vulnerable households.
