Energy saving loans will help 'change attitudes to climate change'

Energy saving loans will help An energy saving expert has said that offering interest-free loans to help Scottish households slash carbon emissions is part of a process to change people's attitudes to climate change.

Harry Mayers, head of programme delivery for the Energy Saving Trust, explained that as well as reducing emissions the scheme has a number of financial benefits to homeowners.

He said the project will help people realise that "by investing in energy efficiency equipment for their home they're actually improving the value of it and also will make their living costs in that home cheaper".

Mr Mayers' comments came after the Scottish government released its plans to allow households to borrow between £500 and £10,000 to fund energy saving initiatives such as improved insulation and new boilers.

At present Scotland produces almost twice as much as the global average of greenhouse emissions per person, an amount which the government wants to halve over the next 40 years.ADNFCR-2539-ID-19405542-ADNFCR
