Postcode Checker

What is this tool for?


This tool is to help energy companies, the wider supply chain and consumers, identify areas that may be eligible for energy efficiency measures under the rural element of both the Carbon Emissions Reduction Obligation (CERO) and the Home Heating Cost Reduction Obligation (HHCRO) of the Energy Company Obligation (ECO).

While we designed it to support our own administration, we’ve made it publically available so others can use it too.


What does this tool do?


You can use this tool to:

  • Search by postcode: to confirm if an address is in an eligible CERO Rural or HHCRO Rural area
  • Search by map and advanced criteria: to identify CERO Rural and HHCRO Rural eligible areas and CERO Rural and HHCRO Rural eligible postcodes
  • Validate ECO specific data: this can be used by energy suppliers and those within the ECO supply chain, but is mainly for our use in our administration of the scheme.

For more information on CERO Rural and HHCRO Rural please go to Help page

Note: CERO will close on 30 September 2018 so this tool should not be used to identify CERO eligible postcodes after this date.
