What is the ECO scheme?
To help Leiston become more energy efficient, Net Zero Leiston is utilising the Energy Company Obligation (ECO) scheme, a government incentive that helps people lower their home heating costs through energy efficiency measures.
Some of the incentives being offered through the ECO scheme include free insulation upgrades and free heating upgrades, which both help households to use – and lose – less heat.
Using less heat means burning fewer fossil fuels. Fossil fuels emit greenhouse gases which cause global warming, so by reducing these emissions, Leiston will be taking an important step in helping to lower the Earth’s temperature.
In addition, using less energy will enable households to save money on their heating bills.
These energy efficiency improvements are being installed by IHI Ltd, who are working in partnership with Net Zero Leiston to deliver the measures to eligible Leiston residents.
