The ECO Scheme is a Government initiative with the aim of helping low income households to reduce their heating bills whilst reducing carbon emissions from homes.
The Government introduced ECO3 in October 2018 and it is expected to run until March 2022.
ECO was first introduced in January 2013 and it has evolved over the years.
When ECO was first introduced it had 3 parts to it but from October 2018 it consists of just the Affordable Warmth Scheme. Affordable Warmth directs funding to fuel poor, low income and vulnerable households.
