ECO4 Flexible Eligibility - the mechanism that could benefit your household and your community

Everyone deserves the right to have a warm and comfortable home to live in, irrespective of age, income or health. The Local Authority Flexible Eligibility (LA Flex) ensures there are equal opportunities for any individual looking to improve the energy efficiency of their home.

La Flex is a new phase of the Energy Company Obligation (ECO4) Scheme introduced by the government to ensure it meets its commitment to tackling fuel poverty. It allows participating Councils to open up the eligibility criteria of the help scheme, enabling it to help more households within their area. This means low-income households with high heating costs will now be able to make the most of the ECO4’s Affordable Warmth Scheme.

To utilise this scheme, Councils must submit a Statement of Intent that outlines eligibility criteria. UK Energy Management (NE) Ltd can help local councils with the implementation of this scheme, helping to determine the qualifying criteria councils wish to use to allow residents access to funding. We can also work with local energy suppliers to help identify households that might benefit from energy-efficient improvements.

Groups That May Benefit

Of the groups covered by this policy, the criteria has been extended to include a wider demographic. In instances where tenants and homeowners are living in fuel poverty, or individuals are vulnerable to the consequences of living within a cold home, such measures as additional insulation or boiler upgrades are essential. When occupiers are living in a property adjacent to one that meets the criteria – this includes multiple homes in one building, immediately adjacent buildings and homes built in the same terrace, they will also be eligible.

All adjacent properties can receive funding towards solid wall insulation and other energy efficient measures if 66% of an area’s households meet the Affordable Warmth eligibility criteria.

The Importance
Of a Flexible Scheme

LA Flex’s requirements mean that Affordable Warmth grants can reach even more customers, including homeowners, private tenants and those who don’t meet their local authority’s Statement of Intent criteria. Not only does this allow local councils to make multiple households in the area eligible for support, but it means that some of the most vulnerable homes can be catered for, during a financially crippling period for millions around The United Kingdom.

Due to the EPC rating of your property, your home's rating is unlikely to be improved by the measures we install. We are sorry that we cannot help you further in this instance.
The lower your home's energy efficiency rating, the more money the government make available for you to improve it.
