Gibson comments on CHaP

News release
Immediate release


Highlands and Islands SNP MSP Rob Gibson has called for Highland Council to account for the Caithness Heat and Power scheme.

Commenting Mr Gibson said...

"The time has come Highland Council to account for the botched and complicated Wick CHaP scheme for Pulteneytown. Lessons can be learned and need to be quickly."

"The Scottish Government has indicated a target of 11% of demand for heat will come from renewable sources. At present 1% of demand is met. Therefore the Highland Council can play a key role. Paying for such schemes can reduce over time. Today the SNP seeks assurance that a sustainable scheme will be put in place."
