E.ON Joins Business Call to Protect UK Efficiency Scheme

(Business Green)

More than 40 businesses and trade bodies, including E.ON, Carillion and Travis Perkins, will today warn the Prime Minister that his plans to roll back green regulations could have the "perverse effect" of pushing up bills.

The coalition of businesses, led by the UK Green Building Council, say they are particularly concerned by proposals to scale back the Energy Company Obligation (ECO) scheme, which requires the so-called "Big Six" utilities to insulate the homes of vulnerable and low income households and "hard to treat" properties.
