District Heating Loan Fund

Loans offered on a commercial basis for both renewable and low carbon, low emission technologies in Scotland, for heating distributed through a network of pipes to provide space and water heating in homes or offices.

Applicants may apply for low interest, unsecured loans worth up to £500,000 which may be repaid over either a 10 year period or a 15 year period. Loan terms for larger projects that exceed £500,000 may be considered on a case by case basis.
