    Utilita's Eco Scheme - Explained


    29-06-21

    Hi Guys πŸ˜€

    Ever heard of Utilita's Eco Scheme? Here we explain what it is, and how it could benefit you! πŸ€—

    What is the ECO Scheme?

    The ECO scheme is the Energy Company Obligation which is a government energy efficiency scheme in Great Britain that is designed to help reduce carbon emissions and tackle fuel poverty.
    If you’re eligible for the scheme, then you could benefit from a brand-new boiler as well as a variety of other measures that are offered through the ECO scheme, all of which can help make your home more energy efficient and save you money on your energy bills.
    Utilita will install these measures for free.

    How do I know if I am eligible for the Eco Scheme?

    To be eligible you must:

    - Own your own home or live with the homeowner
    - Have a UK benefit recipient living in the property
    - Have a broken, old or inefficient boiler
    - Live within the region we currently operate in

    How does it works?

    Within Utilita the customer journey goes as follows:

    1. The ECO team call the customer and finalise customer eligibility over the phone
    2. A survey appointment will be booked for a Retrofit Assessor to attend the property and conduct a full property assessment.
    3. The ECO team will review the evidence collected at survey stage and confirm if the boiler installation can go ahead.
    4. A boiler installation date will then be booked in with the customer via the ECO team.

    This whole process from accessing the lead to completed boiler installation is expected to take up to 7 weeks.
