Coun­cil ten­ants across South La­nark­shire will save a to­tal of more than £370,000 on their do­mes­tic fuel bills thanks to work done to their homes in the past year to im­prove their energy ef­fi­ciency.

Up­grad­ing works has seen all el­i­gi­ble hous­ing, meet­ing the Scot­tish Hous­ing Qual­ity Stan­dard.

A fur­ther 79 per cent of homes meet the Scot­tish Gov­ern­ment ’ s Energy Ef­fi­ciency Stan­dard for So­cial Hous­ing ahead of the 2020 dead­line.

Ann Gee, Ex­ec­u­tive Di­rec­tor of Hous­ing and Tech­ni­cal Re­sources, said: “In these dif­fi­cult fi­nan­cial times, we are de­lighted that this work should re­sult in lower bills for peo­ple across South La­nark­shire, as well as giv­ing them more com­fort­able homes.

“We are al­ways keen to use ex­ter­nal fund­ing for en­er­gy­ef­fi­ciency mea­sures to off­set our costs and help us to de­liver im­prove­ment pro­grammes, and so it was a great ben­e­fit to bring in £ 3.06mil­lion of fi­nance from schemes such as Home Energy Ef­fi­ciency Pro­grammes Scot­land (HEEPS) and Greener Homes Cashback.”
