Energy Saving Support for Dunfermline Homeowners

MSP Bill Walker has urged Dunfermline homeowners to find out if the Energy Saving Trust can help them make their homes greener and more energy efficient.

The Dunfermline MSP said: “The Energy Saving Trust provides the free Home Renewables advice service, on behalf of the Scottish Government.

“It launched in 2008 to help homeowners improve the efficiency of their homes and keep costs down while upgrading their energy systems. So far, over 8,000 homeowners have benefitted, including 64 in Dunfermline

“The service supports homeowners by providing impartial advice to help find the best renewables options for them, which includes free home visits to assess properties. Homeowners receive detailed reports outlining their options.

“Specialist advisers can also give information about the various offers and financial support available, such as the Scottish Government’s interest-free loan of up to £10,000, which can help homeowners upgrade to renewables systems. In addition, advisers can help find installers and quotes.

“Through the Green Homes Network initiative, homeowners can visit and learn from other residents who have had renewables systems installed. The Energy Savings Trust will also hold its first Green Homes Network Open Day, on 29th September, when homeowners from across seven areas will open their doors to local people who want to learn more about installing and having a renewables system.

“The Home Renewables service has helped thousands of households across Scotland, and I would urge homeowners in Dunfermline not to miss out on any help to make their homes greener. There is nothing to lose by enquiring.”
