Fancy turning the Scottish weather into energy for your home? With the recent weather it's not uncommon to see four seasons in one day - but did you know no matter what the conditions it can also be a great source of energy for your home?
Renewables systems can help you to keep your home energy efficient, helping you forecast major savings. And specialists at the Energy Saving Trust are on hand to guide you through the process - offering free, impartial advice on what will work for you and your home.
Scotland has an abundance of wind, wood, light and heat (yes, really - it's just hidden!) meaning that thousands of people across the country are already reaping the benefits of investing in renewables technologies such as wind turbines, wood fuelled heating, solar panels and heat pumps.
Systems are available for homes of all shapes and sizes and can enable you to make savings while keeping your home energy efficient.
To assist homeowners with the upfront costs your local Energy Saving Scotland advice centre can advise on interest-free loans of up to £10,000 (provided by the Scottish Government) for all types of renewables and grants of up to £1,250 to contribute towards the cost of installing a heat generating system.
The team of specialist advisors can also help you find certified installers and quotes.
