Funding

The UK Government has obligated the larger energy suppliers to deliver energy efficient measures to domestic homes in Britain for many years. There have been various schemes implemented over this time period. Some funding opportunities allow customers to have work completed on their property for FREE.

Warm Front Limited can help by utilising one of our fully qualified and trained assessors to take you through the funding options available to you. Depending upon your needs and circumstances we can ensure that you get the best solutions that are available today.

The following three links are the most common funding opportunities available to the majority of our customers.

The Energy Company Obligation (ECO)

The latest UK Government scheme is called the Energy Company Obligation (ECO), which began back in January 2013. The initial ECO scheme ended on the 31st March 2015 and is currently being extended with a speculated end date of September 2018.

Home Heating Cost Reduction Obligation (HHCRO)

This subsection is specifically for customers on low-incomes or who already receive certain qualifying benefits. HHCRO will offer any measures that help reduce heating costs of the household.

Carbon Emissions Reduction Obligation (CERO)

This subsection is to provide funding for insulating solid walled properties (External and Internal Wall Insulation) or “Hard to Treat” Cavity Wall Insulation. “Hard to Treat” is where there are access issues or installation requirements may differ from a standard installation.

Heating Finance Options

Warm Front Ltd offer a range of finance options to allow home owners to purchase a new heating system or boiler using flexible, affordable monthly payments.

Alternatively we can offer upgrades to existing heating systems utilising the governments ‘Help to Heat’ scheme to households on qualifying benefits.

Feed In Tariff

The Feed-in Tariff (FIT) scheme is a Government programme designed to promote the uptake of a range of small-scale renewable and low-carbon electricity generation technologies. Electricity generated from Solar PV panels can be exported to a utility company through the national grid.

Renewable Heat Incentive

The Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) is a UK Government financial incentive to promote the use of renewable heat technologies amongst householders, communities and businesses through financial incentives. It is the first of its kind in the world and the UK Government expects the RHI to contribute towards the 2020 ambition of 12% of heating coming from renewable sources.
