COVID-19 UPDATE...

We are still providing information and support over the telephone, zoom etc.

Funded by the Scottish Government’s Climate Challenge Fund, the Communities for Conservation project aims at inspiring minority communities to reduce their carbon footprint through energy saving, cycling and food growing.

Project activities include home energy advice visits to help householders reduce energy use, carbon emissions and move out of fuel poverty.

As part of a home energy visit we offer:

- Energy tips to lower bills.
- Find a cheaper energy supplier.
- Review energy contract and get a cheaper tariff.
- Help and advice with bills (estimated bill, submitting meter reading, etc).
- Set up an online account.
- Switching from prepayment meter to normal meter or smart meter.
- Help to purchase LED light bulbs.
- Use an energy monitor
- Financial help with energy debt (British gas trust, E.On trust, etc).
- Check eligibility for a new boiler, loft insulation, cavity wall insulation, draught proofing, and other energy efficiency measures.
- Check eligibility to the £140 Warm home discount.
- Signposting to relevant agencies.
- Thermal Imaging to see heat loss spots and cold spot in the house, and how to reduce heat loss
- Renewable energy advice.
