McArthur Welcomes Announcement on Solid Wall Installation Pilot for Orkney
Posted on 22 September 2011

Responding to the announcement by the Scottish Government that Orkney will form part of a ‘pilot’ scheme providing loan support for households looking to install solid wall installation, Orkney MSP Liam McArthur said:

 

“Orkney has a proud record in pioneering initiatives to improve the energy efficiency of island homes. Given the alarming number of Orkney households in fuel poverty, this is absolutely as it should be.

 

“It is therefore welcome that Orkney has been selected for this pilot scheme, providing loan support for households working to install solid wall insulation.

 

“However, local installers must also have the opportunity to benefit from the scheme.  Ministers must take steps to ensure that these small, local firms are not excluded by the way in which the scheme rules are structured.”
