Act now for ECO, says Eco Solartech

Householders across Lancashire may be missing out on an opportunity to install energy efficient measures in their homes free-of-charge, according to Altham-based renewables specialists Eco Solartech.

ECO, or Energy Company Obligation, is a recently launched government scheme which calls on the big energy companies to contribute some of their profits to improve the energy efficiency of homes on a means-tested basis.

Boilers, insulation and glazing are all available under the scheme and can be installed at no charge to the homeowner. As part of ECO, the government estimates that £1.3bn per year worth of energy efficiency and heating measures will be delivered across Great Britain, with a focus on areas of high deprivation.

Mat Pickup, managing director at Eco Property Services, a new division of Eco Solartech, said: “Awareness of the ECO scheme doesn’t seem to be particularly high, and it could be helping families and individuals reduce their energy bills for years to come.

“We are encouraging those that feel they may be eligible to get in touch with us so we can quickly assess whether or not they meet the eligibility criteria. Then it’s just a case of installing the relevant energy efficient measure, and you could see a big drop in your energy bills off the back of it!” 230,000 low-income households, or those in low-income areas, are expected to be helped through the scheme.
