At Upgrade & Save, we understand that making your home more energy-efficient is not just about the right technology—it’s also about accessing the right support. That’s why we’re dedicated to helping homeowners across the UK navigate the various government schemes designed to promote energy efficiency. These include the ECO Scheme, Flex Scheme, BUS Scheme, and the Great British Insulation Scheme.

ECO Scheme

The Energy Company Obligation (ECO) is a government scheme that obliges larger energy companies to deliver energy efficiency measures to domestic premises in the UK. It’s designed to help reduce carbon emissions and tackle fuel poverty. At Upgrade & Save, we can help you understand if you’re eligible for this scheme and guide you through the application process.

ECO 4 Eligibility

Flex Scheme

The Local Authority Flexible Eligibility Scheme, or Flex Scheme, allows local authorities to identify households that would benefit from energy efficiency improvements, even if they don’t meet the traditional ECO eligibility criteria. If you’re struggling with your energy bills, Upgrade & Save can help determine if you qualify for assistance under the Flex Scheme.

Flex Eligibility

BUS Scheme

The government will be providing grants to encourage property owners to install low carbon heating systems such as heat pumps, through the Boiler Upgrade Scheme (BUS). These grants will help property owners overcome the upfront cost of low carbon heating technologies.

The BUS will effectively replace the old RHI scheme. From 23rd May 2022 homeowners in Engalnd and Wales will be able to apply for the following
£5,000 off the cost and installation of an air source heat pump
£5,000 off the cost and installation of a biomass boiler
£6,000 off the cost and installation of a ground source heat pump

Great British Insulation Scheme

The Great British Insulation Scheme is a government initiative aimed at improving the energy efficiency of homes across the UK through insulation. Insulation can significantly reduce heat loss in your home, leading to lower energy bills and a smaller carbon footprint. Upgrade & Save can help you understand if you’re eligible for this scheme and guide you through the application process.
