Home energy campaign aims to help Cromarty householders save on energy costs

Householders in Cromarty are being offered the chance to get a free home energy report to help them save £300 a year on their energy costs.

A direct mail campaign by the local Energy Saving Scotland advice centre, promoting free home energy checks, will this month reach over 400 households in the town.

Householders can call the advice centre on 0800 512 012, free from landlines, to complete a home energy check, to give them a free personalised home energy report. The report contains top tips on how to potentially increase their income, cut fuel bills and heat their home.

Peter Rickard, Energy Saving Scotland advice centre's manager, said: "We would like as many Cromarty householders and property owners as possible to return their completed home energy check forms or call 0800 512 012 and speak to one of our friendly advisors. When they complete the home energy check we will send them the personalised energy report and we can refer them for a free, no-obligation home insulation survey."

The local Energy Saving Scotland advice centre campaign is supported by The Highland Council and local community group Transition Black Isle. The mailers will also include a flyer promoting the group's popular Greening Homes and Gardens Day. This year's event takes place on Saturday, 11 September in Culbokie.*

The Energy Saving Scotland advice centre Highlands & Islands, funded by the Scottlish Government, is working with The Highland Council to provide free and impartial energy saving advice to local householders. Any queries about energy efficiency, renewable energy or sustainable transport can be made to the same number.

*Four homes and gardens in Cromarty will be open as part of the Greening Homes and Gardens Day.
