The project was multi-layered, involving education, practical workshops, building projects and technological innovation.
We employed two project development managers to promote energy awareness in the village, create warmer homes and reduce fuel poverty. The refurbishment of the LSIC was key to the project as it enabled us to demonstrate to homeowners how energy-saving measures can really work.
Our project managers worked with Home Energy Scotland to provide cavity wall insulation for multiple homes in the villages, as well as new windows, boilers, heaters, draught-proofing and other forms of insulation. A total of £90,000 was awarded to individuals for energy improvements.
