Highland Council plans energy efficiency community events



The Highland Council is to host information events after it was awarded funding from the Scottish Government to deliver area based energy efficiency programmes in the region.

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.
