The ECO4 fund will support a number of measures including installing external wall insulation, installing smart thermal controls and insulating lofts or walls. It will also support renewable technologies such as solar panels and air source heat pumps.
Currently, more than 14% of households in England live in fuel poverty1. Fortunately, the ECO4 scheme is designed to tackle this issue by helping them make their homes more energy efficient and reduce their energy bills.
