Flexible Eligibility - Energy Company Obligation (ECO) and Great British Insulation Scheme (GBIS)

This page is for Trustmark registered installers who are already registered with Leicestershire County Council’s Flexible Eligibility mechanism for ECO and GBIS, to submit household applications for eligibility checks by the council’s Warm Homes service.

If you are not registered, please contact warmhomesecoflex@leics.gov.uk.

This scheme does not cover the city of Leicester area which operates under a separate Leicester City Council scheme.

Installer Application Submission and Payment

This scheme covers the following Leicestershire local authority areas:

  • Blaby District Council
  • Charnwood Borough Council
  • North West Leicestershire District Council
  • Melton Borough Council
  • Oadby & Wigston Borough Council
  • Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council
  • Harborough District Council

You can check the property is within the Leicestershire County Council boundary before proceeding.


Non-refundable Administration Fee: To process an application for review via the Flexible Eligibility (Flex) mechanism, an administration recovery fee of £50 is payable per application, paid online at the time of submission.

We are not able to refund this fee for unsuccessful applications where the household does not qualify or the address is outside our boundary.

Before you begin, please:

  • Ensure that all mandatory information is completed in Flex applications.
  • Ensure that your Flex applications are accompanied with appropriate and sufficient evidence of eligibility - as detailed in the application form.
  • Prepare copies of your evidence of eligibility in a digital format to upload in the payment form.

The fee is non-refundable should an application be rejected, and resubmission will require another fee payment.

When ready, please complete the payment form, uploading all your application documents and evidence on behalf of a Leicestershire County household.
