Stuart McMillan MSP and Scottish Gas today launched the 2016 Winter Advice Tool Kit and #GetWinterReady campaign in the Scottish Parliament.
As part of today’s launch it was announced that Scottish Gas will provide assistance to those who are looking to reduce their heating bill. As part of the UK Government’s ECO Scheme, Scottish Gas are offering free Loft and Wall cavity insulation to their customers. These measures could save up to £300 per household annually in a typical semi-detached home.
Along with the insulation, Scottish Gas are committed to ensuring every customer is on the best gas and electricity tariff and there is extra support for vulnerable customers who may be entitled to receive a warm home discount, a one off discount of £140.
In sponsoring todays launch in Parliament, Mr McMillan said
“Winter can be a challenging time for households and many people are concerned about their winter energy bill. It is really important to be prepared for Winter, being energy efficient is one way to keep control of your bills.
“It is really important that we are all warm and comfortable through the colder months, todays initiative of free insulation, ensuring you have the best deal possible through Scottish Gas for every customer and extra support to those vulnerable people who need the additional financial help, certainly goes a long way to helping you get winter ready”.
