Bulb is making energy simpler, cheaper and greener. We're changing the way the energy industry treats customers and treats the planet. It's simple things, like calling our customers 'members', that help us stand out from the crowd. We recognise that delivering brilliant support and a simple digital experience makes for loyal members who recommend us to their friends and family.

The Energy Company Obligation (ECO) is a government scheme to help lower energy costs and carbon emissions by making homes more energy efficient. These measures help households to keep their homes warmer, reduce their energy bills and reduce carbon emissions. ECO was launched in January 2013, and has delivered over 2.2 million improvements in around 1.8m homes across the UK but there have been many different versions of ECO even before that.

We're now in ECO3, with the focus on those households in the UK that are in fuel poverty. ECO3 started in December 2018 and will run up until 31st March 2022. As an ECO participant, Bulb will help fund energy saving improvement projects in the homes of low income and vulnerable UK households, such as installing/upgrading insulation or installing new boilers.
