Absolutely nothing to pay

This is not a finance deal. 100% of the costs are covered by the ECO4 Grant Scheme

Increase your homes EPC Rating

The work carried out under ECO4 is designed to increase your homes energy efficiency. Saving you money and helping the environment.

Reduce Environmental Impact

Inefficient homes not only cost the occupants more to keep warm, they can have a negative impact on CO2 Emissions which contribute to climate change.

Is ECO4 suitable for you?

Please note that ECO4 may not be applicable to everyone. This scheme is explicitly designed for individuals experiencing fuel poverty, meaning those who find themselves devoting more than 10% of their income towards energy costs.

What sets ECO4 apart from its predecessors is its commitment to enhancing EPC ratings, benefiting both homeowners and tenants. The eligibility for this grant is determined based on a combination of factors, including individual benefits, health conditions, and income levels. This multifaceted approach provides several avenues to qualify for the scheme. If you’re unsure whether you’re eligible, continue reading to find your answer.

To be eligible for ECO4 your home or property must first meet the following EPC criteria

  • Homeowners – your property must be in EPC bands D, E, F and G
  • Private tenants (or landlords) – your property must be in EPC bands E, F and G

The EPC of your home or property can easily be found by visiting this website if you live in England or Wales or this website if you live in Scotland.

Eligible Benefits

In addition to the EPC qualification, some one living at the property (it doesn’t have to be the owner occupier or the main tenant) must be on one the following ECO4 qualifying benefits:

  • Income-based Jobseekers Allowance (JSA)
  • Income-related Employment & Support Allowance (ESA)
  • Income Support (IS)
  • Pension Credit Guarantee Credit
  • Working Tax Credit (WTC)
  • Child Tax Credits (CTC)
  • Universal Credit (UC)
  • Housing Benefit (new eligible benefit under ECO4)
  • Pension Credit Savings Credit (new eligible benefit under ECO4)
  • Child Benefit (Income Related)
  • Support for Low-Income Household

Could You Qualify for ECO4 through Child Benefits?

For those receiving Child Tax Credit, the ECO4 scheme could be within reach. Your eligibility, however, is dependent on the amount of Child Tax Credit you receive. For instance, single parents with one child will need to receive less than £19,900 to be eligible. Other determining factors include your marital status, number of children, and your role as a parent.

Are There Other Ways to Qualify?

If you’re not in receipt of the aforementioned benefit, don’t worry—there are other paths to eligibility. Income is a key determinant, and households earning less than £31,000 per year often qualify for the ECO4 grant. Other qualifying circumstances may include living in a home that’s susceptible to cold or having children who receive free school meals.

Moreover, if your household has been referred to the Local Authority due to financial difficulties, you may also be eligible for the grant. It’s important to note that any ECO4 application must be supported by relevant documentation. If you believe you meet any of these eligibility criteria, we encourage you to apply. Successful grant approval could result in significant energy savings and enhanced comfort for your household.

If, however, your application is unsuccessful, don’t despair—there may be other energy-saving grants and schemes you can access. Always explore your options to maximise your energy efficiency.
