ECO Flexible Eligibility Scheme
The Energy Company Obligation (ECO) requires large energy companies to help improve the energy efficiency of domestic homes by discounting the cost of improvement works. This applies to certain households who are struggling to pay their energy bills and are defined as being in fuel poverty. The Government has now given Local Authorities the ability to identify vulnerable households in their areas which could benefit from these improvements. The new scheme is called ECO Flexible Eligibility.
Suffolk’s Councils have jointly published criteria, in a Statement of Intent, enabling them to identify households that would benefit from such improvements under ECO flex. Improvements are often fully funded where the household meets particular criteria and is at risk of fuel poverty. Suffolk's Councils are working under contract with Aran Services Ltd and Aaron Services Ltd to deliver improvements under this scheme.
