Free boiler scheme – saving the environment and money
As part of the EU, the UK is committed to reducing its carbon footprint. Part of this commitment is the establishment of ECO, or, the Energy Company Obligation. A Green Tax has been built in to everybody’s bills which pays towards ECO. The Big Six energy suppliers control this money and have been tasked by the Government to fund the installation of free boilers and home insulation into low-income households and those who are most vulnerable
As well as reducing the UK’s carbon footprint households access home efficiency improvements to reduce the cost of heating their homes.
