What is the Affordable Warmth Scheme?

The Government is committed to tackling fuel poverty and it is also committed to reducing carbon dioxide emissions and other greenhouse gases to slow down the effects of climate change

In an effort to remedy both of these problems the Government launched the ECO Scheme (Energy Companies Obligation) in January 2103.

The Affordable Warmth Scheme is part of ECO.

A new ECO scheme started on 1st April 2017 which offers boiler grants and storage heater grants to low income households who receive means-tested State Benefits.

Boiler Grants provide funding for qualifying householders to replace old, faulty and inefficient central heating boilers with new modern energy efficient A rated boilers.
