Electric homes are on the rise in Scotland, but the process is a long and arduous one that can take years.
But, as one DIY enthusiast put it, “if you can’t wait, you can always buy a new one”.
The first step to getting a new home electrical system is deciding whether you need one.
Some may be better suited for people who don’t want to pay a monthly bill, or have already had a home connected to the grid, or who need a quiet, quiet home.
Others might be best suited for families who want to buy and run their own home, or those who need the extra flexibility of an electric car.
There are some options for both.
