What is the Energy Company Obligation Scheme?

The Energy Company Obligation (ECO) scheme is a government initiative aimed at helping low-income and vulnerable households to reduce their heating costs by installing energy-efficiency measures.

The great news is that So Energy is now a participant of the scheme, and we're helping to make home improvements which will reduce heating bills and make homes more energy efficient.  More information on the ECO scheme can be found here.

Do I need to be a So Energy customer to benefit from the scheme?

You do not need to be a So Energy customer to benefit from the ECO scheme, however you must meet the eligibility requirements, this is to ensure the scheme reaches the people who need it the most. 

How can I apply for ECO?

We work with Carbon247 and Effective Energy to deliver our social and environmental obligations. Both are leading providers of energy-efficiency and low-carbon services across the UK, working in partnership with utility companies, local authorities, social housing providers, charities and social enterprises tackling the challenge of fuel poverty and vulnerability.

Carbon247 and Effective Energy operates a service aimed at householders, support workers, councils and energy suppliers to check ECO eligibility quickly and reliably. The questions have been carefully formulated to remove the complexity and confusion that often surrounds ECO advice and there is a clear and secure process to ensure all households can access the service. 

The service is fully supported by a dedicated support team who will deal with your enquiry should you qualify. For further information and to apply, please visit https://effectivehome.co.uk/ or https://www.carbongrants.co.uk/
