The HEAT Project & Home Energy Scotland
The Heat Project is a community based initiative and part of Blairgowrie and Rattray Development Trust. They provide households with free, clear, impartial home energy advice. Their objective is to help homes reduce their energy consumption, energy bills, improve household energy standards, increase house insulation and encourage alternative heating systems.
Usually, The HEAT Project are only able to support households and businesses in Perth & Kinross, but as a fellow community group working on environmental action, they were able to make an exception! We welcomed Nathan along to the hub who asked us some questions about the property and our intended usage, and carried out a simple survey. We then received a detailed summary of the findings, along with recommendations on how we can best heat the hub (and ourselves!).
For the rest of Scotland (including Angus!) a similar service is provided by Home Energy Scotland and Business Energy Scotland. Read more about what they can offer you at the end of this article.
