What actually is ECO3?

Let us explain a bit about ECO3 first

The ECO3 scheme in Scotland (and the wider UK) is the third iteration of the Energy Company Obligation (ECO). Previously, ECO, ECO2 and ECO2t have been active campaigns to reduce carbon emissions and reduce fuel poverty across the UK and more importantly for us, we facilitate ECO3 in Scotland.

ECO3 is funded by a series of medium and large energy companies operating in the UK in conjunction with the Government and a network of Approved Installers, you can see which companies are involved by clicking here.
