Home Energy Scotland is the free, impartial energy advice service funded by Scottish Government, managed by Energy Saving Trust. The service is part of Scottish Government’s approach to tackling fuel poverty, and aims to help householders save energy, save money and keep warm and well.
Advisors can assist in a range of ways from practical energy saving tips, to information about funding available for new boilers, insulation and heating systems. The Home Energy Scotland team can see if people are eligible for financial support, and advice on shopping around for a cheaper energy supply which could mean savings of up to £200 a year.
As part of a campaign to help households prepare for winter, they are keen to reach out and support families across Scotland. They would welcome the opportunity to work in partnership with local organisations in a range of ways to enable more families to get their free service. This can include attending local events and meeting with groups.
