Answer for Changes to ECO

Answered By: 
The Mayor

We welcome the announcement that our "households will see an average saving of £50 a year without reducing help to vulnerable households or sacrificing green commitments" and in particular that the existing dedicated support through the Energy Company Obligation (ECO) for low income and vulnerable households will be maintained and extended from March 2015 to March 2017. Further analysis of the impact of the changes is being undertaken.
