ECO3 government grant

The ECO3 Scheme

What is the ECO3 Scheme?

The ECO3 scheme was introduced by the UK government, so homeowners, private tenants and landlords can apply for a government grant to get a 100% free replacement of their old and uneconomical electric storage heaters.

Is your electric heater system inefficient with low EPC ratings?

Take a couple of minutes to find out if you qualify for ECO 3 funding by answering a few questions.

The Government ECO 3 scheme grant system applications open for Oct 2021.


The ECO3 grant scheme stands for the Energy Company Obligation and this is currently the third phase of the project. But don’t worry, you can apply for the ECO3.

The UK Government Eco Scheme also branches out and includes ECO Scotland and ECO Wales Schemes. Please note, UK Energy Support currently does not cover the ECO Northern Ireland Scheme government grant due to additional conditions.

ECO3 Qualifying Criteria

Do you own or rent a property?
Is it electrically heated?

Well, this is a good start! To receive ECO3 funding, you also should meet the following criteria, which is the correct combination of these income-related qualifying benefits.

  • Homeowner, Landlord or Private Tenant
  • Get Income-Related Benefits

The Government ECO3 Scheme: What Do They Say?

In their ECO3 guidance document, the UK government described to ECO3 scheme 2021 as:

‘The Energy Company Obligation (ECO) requires obligated energy suppliers to deliver energy, efficiency and heating measures to homes in Great Britain. These measures help households to keep their homes warmer, reduce their energy bills and reduce carbon emissions.’

For more information, take a look at the government’s Energy Company Obligation ECO document.

  • Armed Forces Independence Payment

This is a government backed scheme

In the past, people living in the property with solid walls weren’t eligible for the ECO 3 scheme, so they missed out of the energy saving and affordable warmth of a new electric heater due to the high initial costs. ECO 3 intends to continue allowing solid wall insulation funding.

ECO 3 Installers

The government ECO3 scheme covers a wide range of home improvements because the overall aim is to reduce the carbon emissions in our homes across the UK based on the Government’s Carbon Saving Obligation guidance.
