New Energy Efficiency Programme in Highland
3rd February 2020
The Scottish Government has awarded The Highland Council funding to deliver area based energy efficiency programmes in the Highlands.
The area based programmes aim to:
Target fuel-poor areas
Offer insulation measures, such as External Wall Insulation (EWI), Cavity and Loft Insulation
The Scottish Government grant, in conjunction with Energy Company Obligation (ECO) funding, and a homeowner contribution will help owner occupiers and privately rented properties to improve the energy efficiency within their home.
Drop-in Community events have been organised in Thurso, Cromarty and Lairg next week to provide more information.
Monday 10th February
2:30pm - 5:30pm
Thurso Library, Thurso
Letters from The Highland Council are being distributed to home owners in the area inviting them to call in to these sessions to meet representatives from the Council and E.ON, ask questions and confirm eligibility. Other home owners are welcome to attend to find out more information on energy efficiency.
Homeowners and landlords who received a letter are invited to contact E.ON for more information and/or to contact Home Energy Scotland for free and impartial advice.
The Highland Council wishes to highlight to homeowners that initial contact will be in writing only and no cold calling or door knocking will take place.
