Home Energy Scotland

Alongside looking at ways of maximising your income, increasing the energy efficiency of your home is an important means of reducing fuel bills and the threat of falling in to fuel poverty.

Home Energy Scotland can provide information on:

  • Free, impartial advice about the best energy-saving options for your home. 
  • Details of installers in your area.
  • Grants or discounts to help with the cost.

Home Energy Scotland also manages the Energy Assistance Package on behalf of the Scottish Government. This provides a range of measures to support those likely to have difficulty paying their fuel bills or keeping their home sufficiently warm.

Almost everyone can get some form of help, so to find out what the package can offer you, telephone Home Energy Scotland on 0800 512 012 or visit www.energyassistancepackage.com.

 The package has four stages: 

  1. Free expert energy advice to anyone who contacts the Energy Savings Scotland advice centre network on 0800 512 012.
  2. Provides benefits and tax credit checks and information on low cost energy tariffs to those at risk of fuel poverty.
  3. Provides a package of standard insulation measures (cavity wall and loft insulation) to older households and those on one of a range of benefits.
  4. Offers a package of enhanced energy efficiency measures to those who are most vulnerable to fuel poverty.
