Energy Saving Scotland Home Renewables Loan Scheme

Energy Saving Scotland Home Renewables Loan Scheme

In Scotland, the Energy Saving Scotland Home Renewables Loan Scheme is now open for new applications.

Funded by the Scottish Government, interest free loans of up to £10,000 are available to homeowners and/or landlords.

Below is a table displaying the terms of the loans, as the amount depends on the type of technology you plan to install. 

There is also money available to help with the capital cost of connecting to an existing and operational District Heating Scheme. The District Heating Scheme must be approved for support under the Home Energy Scotland renewable loans scheme and both the installer and the products used must be MCS accredited.

As is the case with any renewable heating system, fabric improvements on your property, prior to installation, will increase the efficiency of your system. A new scheme has launched in tandem with the announcement of this loans' continuation, where interst free loans can also be obtained for necessary fabric improvements advised on your Green Deal Advice Report. Please see HEEPS: Loan Scheme for more information. 

Homeowners are also advised to contact their local Energy Saving Scotland advice centre on 0800 512 012 to ask if there are any other financial incentives available under local area based schemes.

For renewable heating systems, householders can combine both the Scottish Government interest free home renewables loan and the UK Government's Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI). Customers interested in renewable electricity systems can apply for both the interest free home renewables loan and Feed In Tarrifs.

Call us today on 0845 301 3121 to discuss which renewable energy system is most appropriate for you and for help to submit an application for an interest free loan.
