Britons in certain council tax bands could get £2,000 grant to improve energy efficiency
The Government’s ECO+ scheme is predicted to help households save £310 on energy bills every year by improving their home’s energy efficiency.
Launched by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) last month, the ECO+ scheme is part of the Government’s push to help Britons across the country bring down their energy bills. Under the plans, the ECO+ scheme will provide £1billion worth of funding which be allocated to households across England, Scotland, and Wales to cover the cost of home improvements to aid energy costs.
The Government said that around a fifth of the fund will be targeted to those who are the most vulnerable, including those on means-tested benefits or classed as being in fuel poverty.
