Support for improving your home

Whether you are insulating your home, replacing your boiler or installing a renewable technology like solar panels, there is help and support available. 

On our website, you will be able to find out more about these grants and schemes that could help you:

  • Green Deal - you could be eligible to make energy efficient home improvements using Green Deal finance, which you can repay through your energy bill savings.
  • ECO - if you live in a low-income or vulnerable household you could be eligible for support with your insulation and heating through the Energy Company Obligation. 
  • Home Energy Scotland Renewable Loan - you could be eligible for an interest free loan of up to £10,000 for renewables systems.
  • Home Energy Efficiency Programmes (HEEPS) - energy suppliers fund measures under their Affordable Warmth Schemes, the Scottish Government funds measures under the Energy Assistance Scheme and support may also be available from the Scottish Government and Local Authorities through Area Based Schemes. We can help by letting you know what support you are eligible for and by helping you to access it. 
  • Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) - you could receive quarterly cash payments over seven years if you install or have already installed an eligible renewable heating technology.
  • Feed-in Tariffs (FITs) - you could make money back on the electricity you generate.
  • Green Homes Cashback - this scheme has closed for applications because funding has been fully allocated, but you can apply to the waiting list to be issued a voucher should further funding become available. Vouchers will be issued on a first come, first served basis. Under this scheme you could claim a grant of up to £7,300 for installing energy efficiency measures such as solid wall insulation or double glazing if issued with a voucher.
