ECO scheme: Solar Panel (PV) Grants

Reduce Your Carbon Footprint While Saving Money on Energy Bills

Solar panel (PV) technology is an excellent investment for households across the UK looking to reduce their carbon footprint while saving money on energy bills. The good news is that the UK government is making solar panel grants available for eligible households to install solar panels in their homes under the ECO4 Scheme.

Solar PV is a renewable heating system that generates electricity even on cloudy and overcast days, reducing your reliance on grid energy and saving you money on energy bills. Plus, with a 25-year manufacturer warranty on panels and a 2-year insurance-backed labour guarantee, you can rest assured that your investment is protected.

Qualifications for Solar Panel (PV) Grants

To qualify for a Solar Panel (PV) grant under the ECO scheme, you must:

  • Own or privately rent your property and have the landlord's permission to make the relevant changes.
  • Have an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating of G, F, or E.
  • Be on a low income or have an illness affected by the cold.

Solar PV is an eligible heating measure where the primary heating system in the property before the ECO4 project starts is a heat pump, high heat retention electric storage heaters, or an electric heating system. A solar PV measure can only be installed with plans to install a non-electric primary heat source, and non-electric heating measures cannot occur after a solar PV measure is installed. This is because solar PV measures are only eligible where they reduce heating costs, which would not be the case with a non-electric primary heat source.

Installing solar panels in your home is an excellent way to reduce your carbon footprint, generate clean energy, and save money on energy bills. With roughly £1.3bn worth of funding for 6.5 million eligible households available, there has never been a better time to apply for a solar panel grant.
