Green Deal

A Government-backed scheme to help you make cost-effective energy saving improvements. Instead of paying for the full cost of the improvements up front, you pay over time through a charge added to your electricity bill.


ECO (Energy Company Obligation)

Funding from the big six energy suppliers to support energy improvements for people on certain benefits, for those in solid wall properties and for households in the poorest parts of the country.

Find out more about Green Deal and ECO.


Feed-in Tariffs

On-going financial support for people generating electricity from renewable sources such as solar PV and wind. Find out more about generating your own energy.



CARES has been established by the Scottish Government to encourage the local or community ownership of renewable energy across Scotland. It's a one stop shop for support, advice and loans to community groups and rural businesses who wish to generate renewable energy. Find out about CARES.



The Carbon Emissions Reduction Target (CERT) has now officially closed. Some companies may still be offering free or subsidised loft and cavity wall insulation in some areas, but most schemes are no longer operating.

CERT has now been replaced by the Green Deal and the Energy Company Obligation.
