ECO Boiler Scheme
The Energy Company Obligation (ECO) is split into three distinct funds:
- Carbon Emissions Reduction Obligation (CERO)
- Carbon Saving Communities Obligation (CSCO)
- Home Heating Cost Reduction Obligation (HHCRO)
These three branches offer funding for different measures and are aimed at different groups across the country.
The free boiler replacement scheme draws funds from the ECO HHCRO fund. The objective of this fund is to tackle fuel poverty in Scotland and across the rest of the United Kingdom.
