Galloway and West Dumfries MSP Finlay Carson has welcomed that 150 homes in Dumfries and Galloway are set to benefit from battery installed technology.
The Scottish Conservative and Unionist MSP says the funding given to Warmworks has the potential to greatly benefit DGHP users who are not currently connected to the gas mains network.
The technology used will potentially reduce electricity bills for users in rural housing, as well as being a lifeline if your home has a powercut.
Mr Carson who met recently with the group behind the project is set to be invited to one of the homes involved once the roll-out starts.
Commenting, Finlay Carson MSP said: “When it comes to rural homes, we should always be looking at innovative ways on how to reduce consumers bills.
“The funding given to Warmworks is a positive step forward and will enable many homes to reduce their bills, powered by their new technology.
“Costs with rural housing are often far greater so if battery powered technology is being explored in order to cut bills and also act as a lifeline in the event of powercuts, then that is only going to benefit those not on the main network.
“I am looking forward to seeing one of these in action at one of the houses soon and hope this can benefit users for years to come.”
