Boiler Grant Scheme Extended to 2018

The Government-backed ECO (Energy Companies Obligation) boiler grant scheme is due to be extended until March 2018.

ECO grants were introduced in 2013 as part of drive to improve the carbon footprint of the UK. Old or inefficient gas boilers pump high levels of carbon dioxide into the environment.

ECO provides funding from the major energy companies for free boiler replacement (up to 100%) and home insulation for low income households in England, Scotland & Wales who claim a specific combination of benefits or tax credits, and who’s existing boiler is old or inefficient.
