McLaren Leisure have recently received funding for a community home energy-saving programme called the Trossachs Energy Saving Team (TEST) project. It is based in Rural Stirling Housing Association office, Doune, with whom the project is partnered, to deliver this free service.
The project is an environmental one designed at reducing carbon-related emissions, and therefore associated bills, brought about by home energy usage and funded by the Scottish Government’s Carbon Challenge Fund for the Trossachs & Teith region and peripheral boundaries.
TEST will be linking trained volunteers with residents by offering practical advice for reducing energy usage, tackling problems regarding condensation and help on using heating controls. We shall also be undertaking Home Energy Checks which will be referred to Home Energy Scotland for possible reductions through government grants such as for insulation.
Are you, or anyone you know of, interested in this project either as a resident needing advice or a volunteer willing to help.
