Scottish householders are being encouraged to go green to heat their homes as the Scottish Government unveils a £5m fund to help install new eco-energy systems.
Energy minister Fergus Ewing launched the scheme on Friday with Inverness householders Lindsay and Iain MacPhee, who heat their home with a wood burning stove and solar panels.
He said: “It’s not complicated. There’s free advice form the energy savings trust that people can free-phone and they can investigate without any commitment whether or not this is for them.
“This new green fund, micro-generation fund of £5m for Scotland should allow up to 100,000 households in Scotland to benefit by 2020.”
People can apply for a grant to fit the systems and it is hoped the programme will also be taken up by schools and businesses.
