The ECO Scheme – Storage Heater Grants Wales was introduced with two aims in mind:
- To help low income households to cut their heating bills by offering grants to replace inefficient and faulty boilers and electric storage heaters, and to install cavity wall insulation and loft insulation.
- To reduce carbon emissions from the UK housing stock by reducing energy usage.
The Storage Heater Grants Wales Scheme offers grants to households who receive certain State Benefits or Tax Credits to replace faulty electric storage heaters with modern, energy efficient, high heat retention electric storage heaters.
The Storage Heater Grants Wales Scheme is due to run until September 2018 but the Government has indicated that it may continue for a further four years.
We will update this website when the Government announces the results of a consultation.
