Act now – warm up your winter

Posted on:

A new energy-saving scheme is in the process of being launched by the Energy Saving Trust and CnES. It offers free insulation including underfloor insulation and draft-proofing. Unlike previous schemes, this one is non-contributory and non-benefits/age tested.

Also in the detail of the offer is a £600 voucher towards the replacement of old inefficient boilers. As before there is also access to an interest free loan for renewable heat and energy installations. This offers upto £4000 interest free for 8 years per technology.

All queries should be addressed to the HOME ENERGY HOTLINE on 0800 512012

Community Carbon Challenge comes to an end

Posted on:

We started out nearly two years ago to work with the residents of North Harris to achieve maximum energy efficiency in terms of heating, insulation and draught-proofing in their homes. The project sought to eradicate Fuel Poverty and encourage Energy Efficiency.

After securing £118,000 in funding from the Climate Challenge Fund, CnEs and Scottish & Southern the project team set about visiting every house in the area.

Now at the end of the project we have achieved:

  • 69 Loft Insulations
  • 32 Cavity Wall Installations
  • Delivered 350 Home Energy Packs
  • Installed 10 Radiator Panel kits
  • Run two Eco-gadget workshops and a show for school children

Customer feedback has been good. We received comments like:

“House is warmer”

”Rooms on first floor warmer”

”Excellent job”

 and the energy monitors that were delivered as part of the Home Energy Pack picked up on people leaving their immersion heaters on accidentally

In parallel with this project Taigh Blath, who carried out the surveys and loft installation also worked on a Hebridean Housing Partnership project. This has delivered insulation to a further 55 households in North Harris.

This project has delivered significant Carbon savings. It has improved the lives of a large percentage of the North Harris community. Thanks must go to TEAS – The Energy Advisory Centre for helping to deliver another successful project for North Harris.
