Interest free loans for Scottish householders for improving home energy efficiency

Share this Post:
The Scottish Government will offer interest free loans to householders to help them cut their fuel bills and reduce emissions. A sum of 2 million pounds is available this year for a pilot loans scheme to help people improve insulation, replace inefficient boilers or install small scale renewables. This measure is part of the package of existing support and ideas on how energy can be saved to cut emissions and boost the economy and was published as "A Consultation on the Energy Efficiency Action Plan for Scotland".
