15m pounds available in cashback for Scottish homes implementing energy-saving measures
Scottish home owners who install energy efficiency measures will soon be able to claim back up to £7,300 as a part of the Scottish Government’s £15 million Green Homes Cashback scheme.
The scheme’s main target is to provide funding to consumers towards the cost of efficient upgrades such as boilers and home insulation, a news report on the matter has revealed. The cashback will be available starting next month for individual householders, with private landlords and social and private tenants eligible to apply.
As part of the Green Homes Cashback scheme, consumers will be able to apply for 75% of the cost of solid wall insulation – up to a maximum of £6,000. As much as £1,200 will also be available for a range of other recommended efficiency measures such as loft insulation and condensing boilers, including heating controls.
Up to £100 could also be refunded for householders’ Green Deal Assessment Report if at least one recommended measure is installed.
Scottish Energy Minister Fergus Ewing believes rising energy prices “remain a huge concern for this government” and claims Scotland invested £36.48 million on average on fuel poverty compared to just £3.52 million in England, £31.31 in Wales and £27.55 in Northern Ireland.
He added: “Scotland is outperforming the UK in the delivery of home energy efficiency measures that is saving householders’ money.
