ECO Scheme Extended to 2028
The Government’s Clean Growth Strategy includes plans to extend the Energy Company Obligation, under which a levy on energy bills funds insulation and new boilers, to 2028.
The Clean Growth Strategy, announced in October 2017, includes plans to insulate more than 6 million homes over the next 15 years in efforts to cut greenhouse gas emissions.
All households suffering from fuel poverty, in which more than 10% of income is spent on heating, will be upgraded to a new minimum energy efficiency standard by 2030. This will strengthen plans already in place to force landlords to ensure that homes they rent out will have an EPC energy efficiency rating of no worse than E, under MEES 2018 Regulations.
