Energy Company Obligation ECO: Help to Heat April 2017 - Sept 2018

Spelthorne Council are currently working with Action Surrey to identify qualifying households to access energy efficiency funding under the Government ECO: Help to Heat scheme which is open to those residents who own their own home or rent from a private landlord.  The scheme is aimed at those who are experiencing difficulties in keeping warm due to low income and high fuel costs or are particularly vulnerable to living in a cold home as result of, for example, suffering from long term illness which is exacerbated by the cold.  Please contact Action Surrey who will help in assessing a household for eligibility against the criteria, agreed by local authorities.

Renewable energy

What is renewable energy?

Renewable energy is generated from natural resources such as the sun, wind, and water, using technology which ensures that the energy stores are naturally replenished.

Instead of buying all your energy from suppliers, you can install renewables to generate your own.

See which renewable options are right for your home by visiting The Energy Saving Trust .

If you are interested in installing renewable energy equipment on your premises then you may be interested in our Action Surrey page.
