Under the Home Heating Cost Reduction Obligation (HHCRO), suppliers can deliver measures to social housing premises where they have an EPC energy efficiency rating of E, F or G.
The ECO2 Order as amended by the Electricity and Gas (Energy Company Obligation) (Amendment) Order 2017, requires the social landlord of the premises to confirm in writing that the premises meet the various requirements under this provision.
This document allows the social landlord to confirm the following:
- the EPC rating reflects the current characteristics of the premises (where the EPC is pre-installation of the ECO measure).
- the premises are generally being let at below market rate.
- where a heating system is installed, at no point prior was a central heating system OR electric storage heater present in the premises.
The signatory must review the available evidence and records relating to the premises prior to signing this declaration.
Energy companies may use their own version of these templates, however, any template for these purposes must contain the information included in this document as a minimum.
This document was updated on 10 November 2017. The social landlord officer name and job title has been added to the details on the signatory.
