Interest-free energy efficiency loan scheme extended

An interest-free loan offer designed to help registered social landlords progress their stock towards meeting the required Energy Efficiency Standard for Social Housing (EESSH) has been extended until the end of August.

The HEEPS RSL Loan is backed by the Scottish Government and allows suitable housing providers to borrow between £30,000 and £1 million to cover a range of insulations (including internal wall, external wall, cavity wall, lofts, flat roofs, under floor and hot water cylinders), as well as installation of draught proofing and renewable technologies.

To apply, RSLs must have a compliant procurement process, use a Green Deal certified installer and ensure all improvements comply with relevant industry standards.

Successful loans will be subject to an administrative fee.
