Scotland Introduces £224m Energy Efficiency Scheme

According to reports from Scottish Energy News, Nicola Sturgeon, First Minister of Scotland, has announced that her government has provided £224m for an energy efficiency scheme that aims to help up to 28,000 people heat their homes.

Included in the Warmer Homes Scotland programme are measures including domestic renewables, insulation and heating within households that have been identified as fuel poor. As part of this programme, those within more rural areas will benefit from the same service as those in more accessible locations.

To further incentivise people to access the help available to them in reducing their fuel bills, the Home Energy Scotland campaign has also been launched, encouraging fuel poor households to get in touch via their hotline.

Through the hotline, callers will be be able to receive information on the home energy improvement schemes, such as Warmer Homes Scotland, they are eligible for.

Speaking on the scheme, Ms Sturgeon commented:

“Through this scheme, the Scottish government will deliver the best possible help to thousands of people who are blighted by fuel poverty, struggling to keep their homes warm and pay their energy bills.

Warmer Homes Scotland is tailored to give vulnerable households living in fuel poverty access to measures to make their homes more energy efficient.”
