We wouldn’t want you to miss out on funding, different grants and the financial helping hand the Government offers to reduce your energy bills and we’re sure you wouldn’t want to miss out on them either! Think of all the money you could save if you found ways to cut your energy bills- you could treat your family to a holiday or decorate the house!
Fortunately, a government initiative called The Energy Company Obligation (ECO) exists to provide certain households that qualify under particular criteria with grants to save on energy bills and cut their carbon emissions. The scheme makes sure the larger energy providers supply efficient energy measures to the UK’s low income or vulnerable households.
Under the Home Heating Cost Reduction Obligation (HHCRO) branch of the ECO scheme, certain households, who come under the ‘Affordable Warmth Group,’ could be entitled to a free boiler installation or a free boiler repair– services the skilled Eclipse Energy team reliably and efficiently deliver.
Further funding includes the Carbon Saving Obligation, which also comes under the ECO initiative. Here, funding is provided to households meeting certain criteria for external solid wall and loft insulation.
Part of the deal in receiving ECO funding includes installing certain energy efficient appliances. Opting to go energy efficient has a hugely positive impact on your energy bills, with The Energy Saving Trust estimating that an energy efficient boiler could save you up to £324 a year!
Eclipse Energy are well positioned to give you, not only expert advice and support in applying for funding, but help in putting energy efficient measures into action. For example, the Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI), which rewards households for generating renewable electricity, giving you the opportunity to earn a fixed income for every kilowatt hour of heat you generate, requires you to have an up-to-date valid Energy Performance Certificate and the MCS Installation Certificate Number for your home’s heating system.
Our experienced team can assess your home and issue you with an Energy Performance Certificate once the assessment is complete and we are MCS accredited. The Renewable Heat Incentive is the first of its kind in the world and the UK is leading the way, so you might as well take advantage of it!
But where do you start? Applying for all these grants and financial help may seem daunting but not with Eclipse Energy! Head over to our user-friendly, quick Renewable Energy Grants Eligibility Check and fill out a form to see what great energy efficiency funding you could be entitled to.
