Insulation for Scottish homes

Insulation for Scottish homes
The Scottish government is urging homeowners to take new measures to save energy within their houses.

This effort is being spearheaded by proposals to encourage adding new insulation to homes.

Improving energy efficiency is one of the chief aims of the scheme, which will see people offered financial assistance to complete the environmental improvements.

John Swinney, the finance secretary, noted that homeowners on low income will be targeted in the energy saving pilot scheme.

He said: "We all need to stop wasting energy in our homes, in transport and at work.

"Advice on how to take simple steps to be more energy efficient - and a loan to make it more manageable - will help thousands of people cut their fuel bills and play their part in reducing emissions."

The initiative is part of the Scottish government's efforts to meet its climate change targets, which include a 42 per cent reduction in carbon emissions by 2020 and 80 per cent by 2050.
