The First Minister said:
The Scottish Government’s energy efficiency programme will help ensure all our buildings are warmer, greener and more energy efficient.
The major investment in this programme highlights our clear commitment to ensuring that we tackle fuel poverty and reduce greenhouse gas emissions – helping those on low incomes as well as protecting our environment.”
