People living in Argyll and Bute are being given the opportunity to make their homes more energy efficient as a result of the Scottish Government’s Home Energy Efficiency Programmes for Scotland: Area Based Scheme (HEEPS: ABS).
Argyll and Bute Council has been awarded funding to help residents make energy efficiency improvements to their properties, such as underfloor, cavity wall and loft insulation.
The programme is available to owner occupiers and private rented householders living in council tax bands A to C, regardless of income, and band D if your income is less than £20,000.
For people on Argyll and Bute’s islands, the criteria has been extended further to include those in band D properties and above, with an energy rating of E or below.
The scheme contributes towards the Scottish Government’s target of alleviating fuel poverty and reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 80 per cent by 2050. It also helps the Local Housing Strategy’s aim to improve the overall quality and condition of housing.
To register your interest for the scheme, or for any home energy efficiency inquiries, contact Home Energy Scotland on 0808 808 2282.
