Over the past few months we’ve been working with Warm Wales to develop a partnership arrangement in which Warm Wales will manage all enquiries relating to ECO 4 funding applications on behalf of Wrexham Council.
What is ECO 4 funding?
Energy Company Obligation 4 (ECO 4) is an obligation on energy suppliers which helps home owners or private renters to cut their energy bills and reduce carbon emissions by installing energy saving measures.
Private renters will need their landlord’s agreement for any work to be completed and meet the necessary eligibility criteria.
The scheme will continue until March 2026 and focuses on reducing fuel poverty in low income and vulnerable households living in fuel poverty and/or having physical or mental health issues made worse by living in cold conditions.
All of the contractors are Trustmark approved and thoroughly vetted by Warm Wales, a list will be published on the Warm Wales site along with all of the other relevant information on the Scheme.
If you think you may qualify for ECO Funding, you can apply via one of the approved contractors listed on the Warm Wales Website, based on what measure you would like to have installed.
The approved contractor will contact you to carry out a survey and identify a package of improvements suitable for your property.
Improvements could include:
- Loft insulation
- Pitched roof insulation
- Flat roof insulation
- Room in roof insulation
- Cavity wall insulation
- External wall insulation
- Internal wall insulation
- Floor insulation (solid or suspended floors)
- Air source heat pumps
