Energy Efficiency

Tuesday, 20th October, 2015

The Energy Act 2011 gives Scottish Ministers power to make regulations to ensure minimum energy efficiency standards in the private rented sector.

This could mean you will not be able to let your property if it does not meet a certain level of energy efficiency.

Help is available now to help improve the energy efficiency of your property or install a renewable technology. 

HEEPS Cashback - is a Scottish Government scheme open to Registered Private Sector Landlords with properties in Council Tax Bands A to C. A rebate of up to 5,800 is available for a variety of measures such as boilers, insulation and secondary glazing. 

HEEPS Loan - is an interest free loan of up to 10,000 available to Registered Private Sector Landlords who wish to install a variety of measures such as solid wall insulation, double glazing or new boilers.

Resource Efficient Scotland SME Loans is a scheme which provides interest free loans of 1,000 to 100,000 to help private sector landlords to install measures that will improve the energy efficiency of their properties. 

Green Deal - landlords can apply for Green Deal finance to cover the cost of installing energy efficient measures recommended in their Green Deal advice report, with the costs repaid through fuel bill savings.

Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) - landlords who install or have already installed an eligible renewable heating technology could receive quarterly payments over seven years to help cover the costs. 

Feed-in Tariffs - you could get money from your energy supplier if you install an electricity-generating technology from a renewable or low-carbon source (such as solar PV or wind turbine) through the UK Government's Feed-in Tariff Scheme (FITs).

In addition, advisors at Home Energy Scotland can provide you with free, expert and impartial advice on how to make you property more energy efficient, as well as advise on financial support, eligibility and how to apply for the different schemes available.
