Fuel bill drive is hotting up

Have your say

FREE home insulation is available to private households in Tranent and Prestonpans after Scottish Government funding was secured to cut fuel poverty.

A total of £445,000 is being provided by the Universal Home Insulation Scheme, run in partnership with East Lothian Council, and from mid-October information will be circulated in both towns.

A total of around 12,000 households will be targeted.

Councillor Stuart Currie said: “This is great news. A similar scheme we ran last year in the Musselburgh area was really successful in helping householders reduce their fuel bills.”
