Local Authority Flexible Eligibility Statement of Intent

Under the Energy Company Obligation (ECO) requirements 2022-2026 (ECO4 Flex & the Great British Insulation Scheme Flex), local authorities can set their own criteria for eligibility for funding for domestic energy efficiency measures. This funding is aimed at those within a local authority most likely to be in fuel poverty. Energy companies can spend up to a maximum of 10% of their full obligation within these criteria. Local authorities must publish a statement of intent that defines who is eligible for funding before this can happen.

Torridge District Council wish to utilise this scheme for the benefit of our residents who are experiencing fuel poverty and will seek to encourage, facilitate and support take up of the measures in fuel poor communities and households.

Where we can, we will work with energy companies, installers and customers to maximise the input of Flexible Eligibility ECO on fuel poor households. However, fitting the criteria within the statement of intent does not guarantee that any individual household will benefit from energy saving improvements as the final decision on funding rests with energy suppliers and will depend on:

  • The survey carried out and installation costs calculated
  • the energy savings that can be achieved for a property, and
  • whether suppliers have achieved their ECO targets or require further measures to meet their ECO targets (this will affect the amount of funding available through the scheme)
