With the recent announcement of the government’s new Climate Action Plan, many households will be working to reduce their carbon footprint.Most importantly for homeowners, the new strategy includes plans for the retrofitting of 500,000 homes. This will be hugely beneficial for our local environment in Letterkenny, and for the country in general. However, as with anything that has major long-term human and societal benefits, making our homes ‘greener’ will come with a significant cost. The good news is that Letterkenny Credit Union stands ready to provide loans for those looking to retrofit their homes in the coming months.Gordon Randles, CEO says Letterkenny Credit Union has launched a new ‘green’ home loan for those wanting to retrofit their homes, but who might need some financial assistance to do so.“The new loan is as affordable as it is flexible. To mark the recent announcement of Ireland’s new climate plan, the loan is currently being offered at an APR of 8.2% *.“The loan is typically approved within 24 hours and does not have any hidden fees or costs. Letterkenny Credit Union is happy to work with borrowers to structure the repayments in a way that suits their financial circumstances best. “The product is designed to take the toxic stress out of home improvements, so you can focus on the greener aspects of your upgrade.”In addition, Letterkenny Credit Union can also help with a loan to assist those homeowners using SEAI home energy improvement grants to retrofit their homes.The Sustainability Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) grant aims to increase the Building Energy Rating (BER) for homes.The grant ranges from €300 for attic insulation, to €700 for upgrades to heating controls and to €6,000 for external wall insulation.The added benefit for homeowners is their return on investment; saving money on their heating bills once the work is completed.The SEAI Grants typically cover one-third of the total cost of the works for an average home. Homeowners can apply to Letterkenny Credit Union for a loan should they need assistance with the remaining balance of the energy upgrade.For further information on the new, green home loan, contact Letterkenny Credit Union at 0749102126 or email [email protected]*For a €20,000, 5 year variable interest rate loan with 60 monthly repayments of €405.06, an interest Rate of 7.95%, a representative APR of 8.25%, the total amount payable by the member is €24306.04.

Amidst heavy police deployment and detention of his supporters, the Patidar quota agitation leader Hardik Patel is set to start his indefinite hunger strike to press his demand for quota and issues of farmers. After denied permission for any venue in Ahmedabad and Gandhinagar, he will hold fast at his residence in the outskirts of Ahmedabad from 3 p.m. on Saturday.In the morning, Mr. Patel claimed that thousands of his supporters have been detained or being prevented from joining his fast by the police.“In all districts in Saurashtra, the government has imposed 144 to restrict people from gathering at any place. In all highways, police are intercepting and checking vehicles to prevent our activists and supporters,” Mr Patel told media persons, slamming the BJP government of using force to break his agitation.“This hunger strike is not a one-day affair. Thousands across the state would sit on fast and it will continue for days. I have also invited people to come to my house to join me in the fast. This is not about me. It is about people of Gujarat” the Patidar leader said.On Friday, Gandhinagar district administration denied him permission to hold his protest and hunger strike in the capital city, citing law and order issues.“This all shows the government is scared of the agitation,” Mr Patel said.Meanwhile, the state authorities have deployed police and even State Reserved Police (SRP) to maintain law and order situation in the sensitive pockets.RB Brahmbhatt, Chief of Gujarat intelligence bureau (IB) said that 158 people from across the state have been detained by the police after the intelligence inputs gathered from across the state.“We have specific inputs and some detentions have been made accordingly,” Mr Brahmbhatt told media persons, denying Hardik Patel’s claim that several thousand people were detained by the cops.The police have also blocked movements near Hardik Patel’s residence and even did not allow Congress legislators Lalit Vasoya and lalit Kagathara to reach his residence to support his cause.Meanwhile, Gujarat’s Deputy Chief Minister Nitin Patel said that the hunger strike announced by Hardik is Congress sponsored agitation to disrupt peace in the state.
