Argyll energy pilot heats homes and businesses for less

Rural communities in Argyll are to benefit from a pilot project trialling new ways to improve energy efficiency. Change Works in Argyll launches this month, helping local homes and businesses improve warmth while reducing energy costs. 

The project will be based in and around west Loch Lomond and Loch Long, covering communities in the area including Arrochar, Succoth, Tarbet and Luss.

The team will organise free activities and events, such as drop-in sessions in local community hubs, to help people find practical ways to cut their heating and energy bills. Local householders will also be offered energy audits of their home or business, and advice on using smart technology, to see how much gas and electricity they are using so they can spot ways to use energy more efficiently and save money.

Eamon King, Senior Project Officer of Change Works in Argyll, said, “We’re looking forward to working together with the community to support householders and businesses to make energy efficiency improvements, cut carbon emissions and reduce heating bills.”

Eamon will be holding a weekly drop-in advice hub every Wednesday afternoon from 12.30- 4.30pm at the Three Villages Hall in Arrochar, the first session will be on 13 March.

Keep up to date with events and activities by following their Facebook page at www.facebook.com/ChangeWorksinArgyll, contact the team on 01301 707 183 or email argyll@changeworks.org.uk for more information.

The project is funded by Scottish Government, delivered by Changeworks and supported by Argyll and Bute Council until March 2020.
