Householders can borrow up to £10,000 to install renewable technologies

The Scottish government is making £3m of interest free loans available to householders to help them install renewable heat and electricity technologies. Up to £10,000 per household will be on offer, depending on the technology and cost of their system.

Households installing renewable electricity technologies will be eligible for payments for feeding electricity into the national grid, and those installing renewable heat technologies can also benefit from Renewable Heat Premium Payment (RHPP) vouchers for domestic renewables. The funding will target homes in fuel poverty.

Scotland’s energy minister Fergus Ewing said: "As well as being a huge help in fighting fuel poverty, this investment will help Scotland become greener.”

He added: "Low cost, low carbon heating technologies such as solar panels and heat pumps will cut emissions and support jobs in the manufacturing and installation industry.”
