What is ECO?
The Green Deal is supported by the Energy Company Obligation (ECO). This scheme will help the most vulnerable and will help deliver major measures such as Solid Wall Insulation in homes which need more work than the Green Deal finance alone can stretch to.
ECO will take over from the existing obligations from the Carbon Emissions Reduction Target (CERT) and the Community Energy Saving Programme (CESP). These existing obligations are due to end in December 2012 and the ECO will take over in addressing energy efficiency in the domestic sector.
