LED Communities Project
An exciting new joint project led by Tighean Innse Gall (TIG) and funded by the Climate Challenge Fund, working in partnership with Urras Oighreachd Ghabhsainn and Urras Oighreachd Charlabhaigh, will help households take steps towards becoming more energy efficient, has just been announced.
The aim of this project is to reduce carbon emissions across both estate areas, by providing householders with information and knowledge as well as encouraging them to save money through behavioural change. Whilst carrying out home visits as well as replacing older, inefficient bulbs with efficient LED bulbs the clients will also benefit from tailored energy efficiency, tariff and switching advice alongside referrals to partner agencies.
This incentive, along with TIG’s reputation, as the local energy agency, was led by the high demand shown by both Galson and Carloway land trusts, to look at fuel use and the cost of heating.
