Home Energy Efficiency Program for Scotland Loan Scheme

Included in the £103 milllion fund allocated by the Scottish Government to tackle fuel poverty 'head on', there has been a £14 million allocation for the Home Energy Efficiency Program for Scotland (HEEPS) Loan Scheme.

This interest free loan of up to £10,000 is targeted at owner-occupants and registered private sector landlords in Scotland wishing to conduct fabric improvements such as increased insulation or secondary glazing.

Although Ecoliving does not install these measures specifically, any initial fabric improvements made to your property will ultimately increase your homes' energy efficiency and provide a better starting point for further improvement relating to home energy provision.

We are commited to offering full-circle support for anyone wishing to make the switch to alternative heating and therefore are more than happy to advise and offer support through this crucial initial stage. The table below contains the full list of eligible applications for fabric improvement with longer repayment periods for larger sums. 

How do I apply?

To submit an application, call Home Energy Scotland on 0808 808 2282, who will arrange for an application form to be sent to you.

All loan applications must be for a measure which is contained within the table but most importantly, within the 'Recommendations for Improvements' section of your Green Deal Advice Report (GDAR) - so you need to have one of these conducted before you submit your application.

Along with the application form, you must include a copy of your GDAR and at least one quote for the works. Once the application has been received, the Energy Saving Trust will conduct a credit check on the named applicant and if successful, a loan offer will be granted. You must not start work until you have received a loan offer.

If your property is in council tax band A, B or C you are also entitled to receive a cashback grant from the Scottish Government's HEEPS cashback scheme.
