Ebike Grants & Loans Scotland

 
 
 

Funded by Transport Scotland (an agency of the Scottish Government) and delivered by the Energy Saving Trust, a range of support is available to encourage ebike uptake in Scotland.

In 2018, Energy Saving Trust awarded Volt the contract to supply ebikes for ebike trials delivered through Home Energy Scotland. We are proud that our relationship with Energy Saving Trust helps to promote greener and healthier transport choices. The interest-free loan makes buying an ebike for personal or business use very affordable at less than £1 a day.
