GRANTS

Energy-efficiency grants

See if you are eligible for a grant towards energy-efficiency home improvements.

The two main energy-efficiency grants schemes that are currently accepting applications include the Energy Company Obligation (ECO) scheme, the current phase is called ECO3 and the new Green Homes Grant Scheme.

Both schemes include funding for energy-efficient home improvements but while the Energy Company Obligation Scheme offers grants to people on a low-income or who have high fuel costs comparative to household income, the Green Homes Grant scheme is available to households in England regardless of their income status but the grant amount is increased (from £5,000 to £10,000) for low-income households.
