ECO4 Scotland

We help people in Scotland use the ECO4 scheme to get free grants for energy-saving upgrades to their home

ECO4 Scotland:
Free Grants For Energy-Efficient Upgrades

Homeowners & private tenants in Scotland can use the Government-backed ECO4 scheme to fund energy-saving home improvements. The grants are 100% free & do not need to be repaid.

Why is this? The Scottish Government wants to reduce carbon emissions to lower the cost of energy bills, especially for people living in fuel poverty. This can be achieved by making homes more energy-efficient. The new ECO4 scheme has made grants available until 2026 for eligible households to carry out these energy-saving improvements.

How can we help? We work with people across Scotland by helping them obtain ECO4 grants to have home improvements carried out for free. To date, we have obtained grants in excess of £3m for our Scottish customers. Even if you’re not eligible for ECO4, we can also help with private funding applications to Home Energy Scotland.

Our service is totally free. Please click here to read more about us & how we work. You can also just fill in a few details to check your eligibility & we will call you back.

FAQs on ECO4 in Scotland:

What is the ECO4 scheme?

The Energy Company Obligation (ECO4) is the 4th phase of a UK government initiative to address fuel poverty and carbon emissions. Energy companies must implement energy efficiency measures in homes, with flexibility in project selection, funding, and partners.

It began on April 1, 2022, and runs until March 31, 2026. ECO4 targets homes in bands D-G, focusing on comprehensive retrofits to improve the whole house. It mandates upgrades for homes in bands E, F, and G, setting minimum energy efficiency requirements.

These upgrades include insulation, central heating, renewable energy, renewable heating, and district heating connections.

Which companies can I trust to help with ECO4 upgrades & grants?

Energy companies collaborate with third-party retrofit coordinators and installers to fulfill their ECO obligations. You may even have been contacted directly by these coordinators or installers regarding ECO4 projects.

Since January 1, 2020, the government has mandated that all installers conducting ECO measures must be a Trustmark Registered Business or an equivalent certification. This requirement also applies to ECO4 measures. When approached by a company claiming to be an installer, it’s crucial to verify their credentials. Look for the following certifications to confirm their registration with a consumer protection body:

  1. For most ECO measures, they should be installed by or under the supervision of a TrustMark-registered installer, identifiable by their registration number.
  2. If the installation involves a district heating connection, the installer must be registered with Heat Trust or have equivalent consumer protection measures in place.
  3. Installers should also possess the relevant certification to uphold installation standards for the specific measure types:
    • Most installations require a PAS (Publicly Available Specification) certified installer with a registration number.
    • When dealing with low-carbon microgeneration measures (e.g., renewable heat production), the installer must be MCS (Microgeneration Certification Scheme) accredited and listed on the MCS website.
    • For gas boiler repairs or replacements, the company should be registered with Gas Safe, which can be verified on the Gas Safe website.
    • For oil boiler repairs, installers must be registered with OFTEC (Oil Firing Technical Association), and this can be confirmed on the OFTEC website.

Naturally, we tick all of these boxes, so please fill out the questionnaire below to see if we can help you get a grant.

Are these genuine grants or a scam?

These grants are genuine. The Scottish government has introduced initiatives to reduce fuel poverty & make more homes energy efficient. You can visit their website here if you would like more info – Scottish Energy Grants.

These schemes are not to be confused with so-called “grants” or “funding” to upgrade your windows or bathrooms.
