People living in Argyll and Bute are being given the opportunity to make their homes more energy efficient as a result of the Scottish Government’s Home Energy Efficiency Programmes for Scotland: Area Based Scheme (HEEPS: ABS).
Argyll and Bute Council has been awarded funding to help residents make energy efficiency improvements to their properties, such as external/internal wall insulation, underfloor insulation, cavity wall insulation and loft insulation.
The programme is available to owner occupiers and private rented householders living in Council Tax bands A to C, regardless of income, and band D if your income is less than £20,000.
For people living on Argyll and Bute's islands, the criteria has been extended even further to include those in band D properties and above, with an energy rating of E or below.
The scheme contributes towards the Scottish Governments target of alleviating fuel poverty and reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 80% by 2050. It also helps the Local Housing Strategy’s aim to improve the overall quality and condition of housing.
