Ecotrans Energy are dedicated to helping home owners and private landlords make energy efficient upgrades to their properties. We aim to advise all our customers about the benefits of green renewable energy, reduce their carbon footprint and in turn save money. Ecotrans Energy are a certified Energy Efficiency company. This means we are able to offer domestic customers an EPC Report which will show any energy savings recommendations that can be made on their property. This Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) can then be used to access ECO funding to have energy efficiency installs fully funded, such as, ROOM IN ROOF INSULATION, Cavity Wall Insulation, Loft insulation to every UK house holder.
What is the energy company obligation scheme (ECO)?
The energy companies obligation was originally introduced in 2013, and replaced two previous schemes: the carbon emissions reduction target, or CERT; and the community energy savings program, or CESP.
Like CERT and CESP before it, the energy company obligation legally requires the energy companies to help improve the energy efficiency of some of their customers’ homes across the UK, thereby reducing carbon emissions and cutting energy bills. A win-win situation.
The first run of ECO ended March 2015, and a newer, more inclusive version of the programme commenced 1 April 2015 and will run until 31 March 2017.
The ECO scheme has three parts:
Carbon Emissions Obligation targets all UK homes
Carbon Saving Community Obligation targets areas of low income and deprived rural areas
Home Heat Cost Reduction Obligation targets low income areas and vulnerable homes
The government estimates that the ECO deal will help thousands of households across the country with their energy efficiency, with up to 230,000 households on lower incomes benefiting, as well as others eligible for other components of the scheme.
