As of April 1st 2015, Utilita will be participating in the Energy Company Obligation, this is an energy efficiency scheme which obligates larger energy suppliers to deliver free energy efficiency measures such as insulation and boiler care to domestic properties within Great Britain.
The ECO scheme is funded by energy suppliers, its aim is to reduce the energy and cost wasted in domestic properties within Great Britain.
The ECO Scheme is made up of 3 parts:
The CERO obligation focuses on hard to treat homes, which are typically the hardest to heat. Within this obligation we will look to install ‘hard to treat cavity insulation’ and ‘solid wall insulation’, other home improvements can be installed under this obligation including connections to a district heating system or loft insulation if so required. To receive funding under this obligation you must reside within a social housing, privately rented or privately owned property.
The CSCO Obligation focuses specifically on the areas that require energy efficiency measure installations the most. To receive funding under this obligation your property must be within a government listed postcode. Within this obligation we will look to install ‘solid wall insulation’, ‘cavity wall insulation’ and ‘loft insulation’.
The HHCRO Obligation focuses on making savings for the persons living within the property. To receive funding for this obligation a member of your household must be a member of the ‘Affordable Warmth Group’ and also either own or privately rent their property. Within this obligation we will look to install ‘Solid Wall insulation’, ‘cavity wall insulation’ and where needed we may be able to upgrade your current boiler or install a new one.
