A group of organisations, co-ordinated by Scottish Renewables, asked the Department of Energy and Climate Change to allow social landlords to claim under the domestic Renewable Heat Incentive, or RHI, last year. The push – backed by WWF, Energy Action Scotland and the Scottish Federation of Housing Associations, among others – was successful, and the scheme was introduced last week.
Stephanie Clark, Policy Manager at Scottish Renewables, said: “Scotland may not be famous for its clear skies, but technological advances and the falling price of solar mean we are now able to grasp the opportunities the sector presents."
