Home Energy Scotland has teamed up with East Dunbartonshire Council to make it as easy and cost-effective as possible for households to install solar panels for electricity or water heating.

If you’ve always wanted to find out more about environmentally friendly energy why not go along to a free event they are holding in Milngavie Town Hall this Saturday between 10am and 3pm.

The event aims to encourage homeowners to consider adopting solar technologies as an alternative source of energy to help reduce their fuel bills and carbon emissions.

Microgeneration Certification Scheme certified installers will be there to offer their most competitive prices to help homeowners get the best value systems available.

People will have the chance to speak to a local home owner and member of the Energy Saving Trust’s Green Homes Network who has already installed solar panels on their home to hear about their experience.

Renewable and low-carbon technologies are good for the environment and good for your pocket too - with government financial incentives, it’s never been a better time to install.

Interest free loans of up to £10,000 are available from the Scottish Government for homeowners to install renewables systems.

Home Energy Scotland Advice Centre Manager Alex Warren said: “A number of installers have opted to take part, offering very competitive deals, meaning you could generate the equivalent of around half of your yearly electricity usage for about £5,000 or up to half of your annual hot water demand for £4,000. Over time you could even make an income from your solar panels from the Feed-in Tariff and/or the Renewable Heat Incentive.”

Milngavie Town Hall is on Station Road.
