Solar News Scotland: Zero interest loans available for solar. But 250 homes ONLY!

Filed under: Latest News

Home Renewables Loans Scheme Scotland. £2000 solar loans.

Zero interest domestic solar energy equipment loans in Scotland.

Use it or lose it! First come first served loans for ONLY 250 people.

In response to the UK government’s latest bungle iteration of the Renewable Heat Incentive Scheme which has delayed the implementation of domestic solar heating subsidies in UK until at least October 2012, the Scottish Government has taken the initiative on green energy – by announcing zero interest loans of up to £2000.

Scottish Energy minister Jim Mather announced that households can apply for interest-free loans for home renewable energy installations of up to £2,000 each, to help install a range of renewable energy technologies in homes.

The modest HRL budget of £500,000 is funded from an underspend in this year’s Scottish energy budget, because fewer people than expected took advantage of an earlier Scottish renewable energy grant scheme.

The “Home Renewable Loans Scheme” (HRLS) will be administered by Energy Saving Scotland and opens on 1 April 2011. Here is the EST Home Renewable Loans Scheme site.

Loans will be available out on a first come, first served basis. Eligible technologies for home renewable energy loans include: micro-wind, biomass boilers, heat pumps, solar electricity panels (solar PV) and solar water heating panels (solar thermal).

People who get loans should also be eligible for the feed-in tariff and eventually the Renewable Heat Incentive, a UK scheme which has a £860M budget for several renewable heating technologies including solar water heating systems.

What next on Scottish solar loans?

1/ Call your local Energy Saving Scotland advice centre for more information on 0800 512 012.

2/ Or email EST on renewablesloan@est.org.uk for an application form now!

3/ Call us now on 0344 567 9032 for a free quote solar PV or solar water heating. All-in prices for thermal start at under £4000. Under £7000 for PV.

There are ONLY 250 LOANS available. It is all about being served first. To get your great value solar panels quote please call us – now. We quote instantly by phone.

We can quote (or requote) for solar panels in just a few minutes at Solartwin. For solar water heating ONLY there is a £300 discount from us in place to make up for the delay in the RHI Premium coming in (July is expected) which is supposed to be a sum of £300.

Our award winning, freeze tolerant, PV pumped solar water heating technology was invented in Scotland at Napier University in Edinburgh!
