ECO Funding - Carbon Emissions Reduction Obligation


Funding for home insulation through the Carbon Emissions Reduction Obligation (CERO) was available through ECO up until October 2018. The CERO strand has now been discontinued.

CERO was designed to help lower the country’s carbon footprint by funding a range of home insulation improvements. It wasn’t means tested and anyone could get funding regardless of their personal circumstances, proving their property was suitable.

It covered the following measures: cavity wall insulation, loft insulation, room in roof insulation, underfloor insulation, internal wall insulation and external wall insulation. The level of funding was dependent on how much carbon was emitted by the home.

In the current phase of ECO (ECO3), funding is only available through the HHCRO (Home Heating Cost Reduction Obligation) channel, allowing low-income and vulnerable residents in private rented or owner occupied properties to qualify. There are also opportunities for tenants in Social Housing in certain circumstances.
