Department has recently consulted on the future ECO scheme that will run from October 2018 until March 2022.

This consultation proposed that the future scheme have a 15% rural sub-obligation to safeguard delivery for rural homes. Within that sub-obligation, the consultation also proposed that measures delivered to off-grid homes continue to receive an uplift (i.e. increased score) to encourage delivery to off-grid homes.

The response to the consultation will be published shortly.
