The ECO4 scheme in Scotland and the wider UK is the fourth and final part of the Energy Company Obligation (ECO). Previously, ECO, ECO2 and ECO3 were launched as campaigns to reduce carbon emissions and reduce fuel poverty across the UK.
ECO4 is funded by a number 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 to find out more.
Typically the process is fairly simple. We perform a free survey on your property to ensure that your property meets the criteria required, once we understand that the property is suitable we then collect some simple documentation to prove your eligibility. We then take some photos and create our funding file. Generally, within a week or two after this point our various teams will have been in touch to install your energy saving measures.
No, there’s absolutely nothing to pay back once the works are carried out. The ultimate goal of the ECO scheme is to help reduce fuel poverty across the UK, to achieve that goal the funding is handed out as a grant to ensure it doesn’t cause further hardship.
Yes, if you qualify for funding it is entirely free! There are absolutely no hidden charges, if you’d like to pay towards a more expensive material or product to complete the measure (for example a more expensive boiler) there may be additional charges.
If you’re in receipt of any government benefit (including child benefit) it’s unlikely there will be any charge for works carried out.
All of our Installation partners are PAS 2030 accredited and all renewable system install partner are accredited MCS members.
All improvement measures are fully guaranteed and come with full Trustmark backing.

I have just had the heating system installed in my home. What a difference! I have been so cold for many years and now the house is lovely and warm and is so comfortable. The solar panels have made a difference already on the heating Bills. Down by approximately 30% already. I was worried about the upheaval of the process, but the team was so helpful I didn’t need to worry. All of the specialists who came to my house were helpful, courteous and tidy. The quality of finish was perfect, and they overcame any problems with grace. I am so grateful to have been given this opportunity to change my lifestyle. There really is no downside. Thank you to all who made this happen to me.
Just wanted to make sure that you knew what a great team of professionals you deal with. Every one of the guys involved has been efficient and shown nothing but respect to our property and to John and myself Don’t remember everyone’s name apart from Scott and Ross, but everyone has been great, from the guys surveying the property, the chaps that did the loft insulation, the cavity wall insulation, the solar panel installers, the electricians. Please pass on our comments and thanks to them and to any I have omitted to mention. This includes all of you that have dealt with me on the phone. Oh and George, who did the Air pressure testing… I was worried about the upheaval of the process, but the team was so helpful I didn’t need to worr...
Having recently had insulation, solar and a heat pump installed through ECOT I can honestly say that all teams involved were professional and tidy. We love the heat pump as our old sandstone cottage is always warm. Russell, our contact at ECOT kept us informed of developments and supported us through the funding process. If you are considering the Eco4 grant, this is the way to do it.
