Boiler grant plan unveiled

A NEW boiler scrappage scheme designed to cut energy bills and provide a boost to the heating industry was unveiled today.

Housing minister Alex Neil said up to 5,000 homes would receive a 400 grant towards the cost of a new boiler.

The Scottish Government estimates that upgrading to a more efficient boiler will save users 190 on fuel bills every year.
