A further £4 million for the Home Renewables Loan Scheme to help householders cut their energy bills was announced by First Minister Alex Salmond today.
The scheme gives individuals access to interest free loans of up to £10,000 for a range of renewable heat and electricity home technologies. Since April 2011, it has helped reduce dependency on fossil fuels and has allowed householders across Scotland access to cleaner, greener energy.
The First Minister made the announcement while visiting the Western Isles as part of a series of travelling cabinets.
Mr Salmond visited the Smith family home on the Isle of Lewis which is one of 53 homes in the Western Isles which has benefitted from a Home Renewables Loan.
