The Energy Saving Trust

They offer a standard grant of £250 and an extra £100 available for specific ‘rural category 8’ postcodes as defined by the Scottish Government.
In order to claim this grant, you (the customer) must apply directly to them prior to works taking place. You will need to submit a copy of our quotation.
Upon successful approval they will provide you with a reference which you then give to us in order to allow us to book in your works.
When we complete your works, you will need to submit your receipted invoice to the EST and they will then make a payment direct to you.
