People in Scotland who are looking for cheap electricity deals may be tempted to take advantage of a government scheme to make their homes more environmentally friendly.
It was noted by the Energy Saving Trust that the country has seen a particularly strong take-up of the Renewable Heat Incentive, which can provide grants of up to £1,250 for items such as heat pumps and biomass boilers, STV reports.
Director of the organisation in the country Mike Thornton stated he was pleased with the interest being shown in the initiative, which he said could be a good way of dealing with rising fuel bills.
He added: "It shows that homeowners in Scotland are determined to make their homes more cosy and energy efficient."
Such schemes could be important for many people, as a recent study by Consumer Focus estimated a quarter of UK households are now in fuel poverty.
