Who is eligible?

The scheme is designed to support vulnerable, low-income households, and there is certain criteria which must be met. Award-winning EnergySmart can do the admin for you and help you work out whether your household is eligible for financial support.

Financial support comes from a government-backed scheme called the Energy Company Obligation scheme (ECO).

EnergySmart Managing Director Harvey Mason said: “Not many people are aware of the grants that are available. The average value of the grants we process is £37,900 per household, which can pay for all kinds of energy saving upgrades such as solar panels, central heating, insulation and more. As an accredited enery company obligation installer, we’re very proud to be able to help the local community in securing these grants and assisting people with making their homes more energy efficient.”

Home improvements help the planet, and keep pounds in your pocket. To find out if this scheme works for you speak to the EnergySmart advice team on 01282 501 769 or go to their website
