Energy Company Obligation (ECO) funding:
This is a national grant scheme that channels funds from the big energy companies to help households pay for energy saving improvements. Through the Energy at Home scheme we are currently able to offer the following ECO grants to home owners, and private tenants and landlords:
* Subject to survey, suitability, and funding availability
To access any of the grants available through the Energy at Home Scheme, you will first need to have a home energy assessment. This costs £25 or may be free if you meet eligibility criteria - contact the Advice Service who can check your eligibility.
Following the assessment a quote can be prepared for any of the recommended measures you may want installed. You will receive information about how much grant you are eligible for alongside your quote. Any quote that you receive through the Energy at Home Scheme includes a fee to help pay for the overall coordination of the Scheme. This helps to fund the provision of advice; support for customer care and quality assurance; and the bidding for and administration of grants. This fee is necessary to enable Bath & North East Somerset Council to opperate the Scheme in the long term.
Warm Homes Grant
The Warm Homes Grant is jointly funded by National Energy Action (NEA) and Bath & North East Somerset Council. The grant can provide help to improve heating and insulation measures for home owners and renters who are on a low income and have difficulty keeping their homes warm. Applicants will have a home visit to establish eligibility and to help fill in the application form.
