Highland Council to host energy efficiency community events
The Highland Council has been awarded funding to deliver area based energy efficiency programmes in the region.
The area based programmes aim to target fuel-poor areas and 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 Tain, Milton and Balintore the week beginning October 28 to provide more information.
Details of the three drop-in events are:
- Monday 28th October - 2pm - 5:30pm at Tain Library
- Wednesday 30 October - 2pm - 6pm at Mercat Centre, Milton
- Friday 1 November - 2pm - 6pm at Seaboard Centre, Balintore
Letters from the council are being distributed to home owners in the area inviting them to call into 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.
