The Great British Insulation Scheme (formerly known as ECO+) is dedicated to assisting numerous individuals throughout the UK in improving their home insulation. Verify your eligibility today.
The Great British Insulation Scheme (GBIS) is designed to complement the existing ECO scheme, referred to as ECO4. This initiative aims to facilitate the installation of energy-efficient measures, ultimately reducing energy consumption and helping you save on your utility bills. The scheme is set to launch by Summer 2023 and will continue through March 2026. The government estimates that households could save approximately £310 per year through this program.
