LA Flex is a part of the governments already successful ECO scheme where certain households can qualify for improvements like insulation and heating without needing to be on a means tested benefit.
This new mechanism, also known as “flexible eligibility”, allows Local Authorities to make declarations determining that certain households meet the eligibility criteria for a measure under ECO.
If your properties Energy Performance Certificate(EPC) is D, E, F or G rated or if you don’t have a current EPC then you should qualify.Click here to find out more

Funding is available for most UK households as part of the Energy Company Obligation (ECO) scheme, which aims to help reduce carbon emissions and help more homes keep their homes warm.
Under ECO, larger energy suppliers fund the installation of energy efficiency measures in UK homes, so you benefit without the expense. The scheme covers installations, such as cavity wall insulation, loft insulation, room in the loft insulation and more efficient heating systems. If the energy suppliers fall short of their obligations they receive hefty fines. The ECO scheme legally requires the main energy suppliers to install energy efficient technologies such as cavity wall insulation, loft insulation and room in the roof insulation to households in the UK.
From 1 April 2018, the new Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES) comes into effect, which requires landlords to ensure that their properties reach a minimum EPC rating of E. The regulations apply to new lets and renewals of existing tenancies. Any landlord who fails to meet the minimum compliance standards could face a minimum penalty of up to £10,000, rising to a maximum of £150,000.
