Energy Company Obligation (ECO)

This is a scheme funded by energy suppliers. We are working with Warmfront, its installers JJ Crump, and Eon Energy to carry out improvements such as loft and cavity wall insulation for households which meet certain eligibility criteria.

The first phase is targeting the Wormholt Estate in the north of the borough.

Statement of Intent

The Statement of Intent (pdf 195KB) shows the criteria we will use to establish eligibility for the Energy Companies Obligation (ECO) Flexibility Scheme.

The Statement of Intent identifies:

  • Fuel Poverty Scheme - households having difficulty affording to heat their homes to adequate levels
  • In-fill Scheme - to allow solid wall insulation to take place in groups of properties where only some of the residents currently qualify for ECO support.
