This document sets out our requirements for implementing a monitoring regime to evidence Affordable Warmth Group status under the Energy Companies Obligation (ECO).

Evidencing Affordable Warmth Group eligibility is a both the Home Heating Cost Reduction Obligation (HHCRO) and the rural sub-obligation under the Carbon Saving Community Obligation (CSCO).
