These two websites are a must, whatever your home building plans are. Home Energy Scotland, funded by the Scottish Government, is a network of local advice centres covering all of the country. Since its inception in 2008 it has helped save more than £1 billion on domestic energy bills. If you use renewable energy to heat your home, you could get incentive payments from the UK Government. There is a wide range of support available to help you install, and even make money from, renewable technologi­es. Available grants, loans and financial schemes depend on where you live in the UK. Here in Scotland, you could get an interest-free loan up to £17,500 to install home renewables. Under the UK Government’s domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) scheme, you could receive quarterly cash payments over seven years if you install, or have already installed, an eligible renewable heating technology. RHI is confirmed for systems completed by 31 March 2022, then Clean Heat Grants follow.
