Under the Government’s Energy Company Obligation (ECO) scheme, Local Authorities have been given the flexibility to define the eligible households living in, or at risk of fuel poverty and have some latitude to go beyond that, where they find households vulnerable to the effect of cold homes. This scheme is known as the Local Authority Eligibility Flexibility (LA Flex), with the eligibility criteria defined by your Local Authority.
There are two main categories of eligibility for LA Flex:
- Fuel poor households, especially those on low income and not in receipt of ECO eligible benefits; and
- Low-income households that are vulnerable to the effects of living in a cold home
City Energy is now working closely with many Energy Company Obligation Flexible Eligibility (ECO FLEX) adopting Local Authorities across England and Wales.
Please get in touch with us today to confirm if we are working with your Local Authority and if you qualify for the LA Flex scheme. Get in touch today by either completing our contact us form, email us, or call us on 02920 499 183.
Our network is continually growing, and we are building new relationships everyday with new Local Authorities so if we’re not working in your area currently, please let us know and we will see what we can do to help.
