What is ECO?

The Energy Company Obligation (ECO) scheme is designed to support vulnerable and low income households, as well as hard to treat buildings where the expense  of implementing energy saving measures could not be recouped through savings in energy bills (such as the Green Deal).

ECO places legal obligations on larger energy suppliers to deliver energy efficiency measures to customers. Premier Energy Solutions have partnered with a number of energy suppliers to help them deliver this legal obligation to you the customer.

There are a range of energy efficiency products available under ECO including

  • Insulation – cavity wall, solid wall and loft.
  • Heating – repairs or replacements on gas boilers, electric storage heaters, warm air units, heating controls and heat recovery units.

Depending on which part of ECO you are eligible for, will decide which energy saving measures are available to you. Our assessors will be able to advise you on the measures you are entitled to. The installed measures will substantially reduce your energy bills and will raise your standard of living, by saving you money on your energy bills. Allowing you to have the heating and hot water on when you need it and not only when you can afford it.
