S5W-07545: Liam McArthur (Orkney Islands)

Scottish Liberal Democrats

Date lodged: 24 February 2017

To ask the Scottish Government whether the deadline for the Home Energy Efficiency Programmes for Scotland (HEEPS) loan scheme has been extended and, if so, how this has been publicised to people who might be eligible to apply.

Answered by: Angela Constance 7 March 2017

I can confirm that the deadline for the HEEPS loan – with 25% Cashback has been extended. Provided they have submitted their application and secured an offer by 31 March 2017, applicants will now be given a loan offer which is valid for 6 months, during which time they will need to complete works and claim. The new deadline is being promoted by the Home Energy Scotland advice centres through events, communications and social media, as well as through calls into the advice centres.
