ECO4 Scheme

The ECO4 scheme is one of many mechanisms the Government has established in helping households to achieve their goal of going 100% carbon neutral. The ECO4 scheme provides grants to fund energy-efficient upgrades to homes reducing emissions, electricity and energy bills. These grants pay for new heating systems like boilers, loft or cavity wall installation and other measures designed primarily to increase energy efficiency and reduce fuel poverty and energy costs.

LA Flex

Under the Energy Company Obligation (ECO) your local council can expand the eligibility for those who may not meet the Benefit criteria with the ‘flexible eligibility’. The application will have to be declared eligible by local authorities. The Application process for Declaration is carried out by the Installer on behalf of the customer. 

Participating local authorities will have to ensure these are households in private tenure living either in fuel poverty or living on a low income and who are particularly vulnerable to the effects of living in the cold. In addition, some non-fuel poor homes will be allowed for solid wall insulation projects, if a proportion of the households in the project are in fuel poverty or living in the cold.


Private Funding - Home Energy Scotland

We can help you navigate the funding landscape to maximise the money that is available to reduce your energy costs and lower your carbon emissions.

There is funding available from Home Energy Scotland to assist with privately funded installations.

The below summaries give further detail on these schemes to help you understand what you may be eligible for. However, if in any doubt please just give us a call or drop us a note and we can provide all the advice you will require.

Home Energy Scotland - Private Funding

Home Energy Scotland (‘HES’) is funded by the Scottish Government and run by the Energy Saving Trust. So if you don’t qualify for ECO funding there is still a lot of help available. This funding is a mix of interest free loans and cashback (effectively a grant). The maximum amount available per home is £38,000 as shown below.

storage heater


Electric Storage Heaters
Free, replacement electric storage heaters are available via ECO 4 scheme introduced by the UK Government in the Autumn of 2018 and will run until the year 2022 reducing heating costs and their carbon footprint. 

First-time central heating (FTCH)
Heating your home accounts for more than half of your total energy use (around 55%), so your boiler installation shouldn’t be a half-hearted decision!

Air Source Heat Pump
You’re probably using electricity to heat your home if you live in an area that doesn’t have a gas connection, and this is normally in the form of an electric storage heater.
