The Edge of Scotland project is designed to support the transition towards an energy efficient Scotland. It promotes the development towards those able to pay making a contribution for energy efficiency measures and to see what the take up of this will be. Edge of Scotland is an outreach project which focuses on businesses and community buildings across the Outer Hebrides, as well as households requiring energy efficiency who may not receive free insulation or heating systems. For those who can receive free measures, it acts as a referral for them too.
The Edge of Scotland project will be delivered from our Cothrom office in South Uist.
Tighean Innse Gall are working with CnES to develop a “one stop shop” for advice and information on housing repair and maintenance, energy efficiency, home safety and related financial issues. This brings together its Care & Repair, Insulation and Energy Advice Service departments to offer handholding and delivery support throughout Home Energy Efficiency Programmes for Scotland: Area Based Scheme; Equity Loan Scheme; and through its partners Home Energy Scotland, Warmer Homes Scotland Scheme or Home Energy Loan Scheme. This ‘one stop shop’ is the model for Edge of Scotland and our project is supported by CnES and Home Energy Scotland.
