Eco Savvy

The Arran Banner - - Feature -

‘Your en­ergy bill will be in­creas­ing by 3.8% as of the 1st of December…’ the dreaded let­ters which are un­for­tu­nately be­com­ing fa­mil­iar to house­holds across the is­land.

Eco Savvy is cur­rently be­ing funded by the Scot­tish Govern­ment’s Cli­mate Chal­lenge Fund to help Ar­ran res­i­dents tackle do­mes­tic en­ergy re­lated is­sues, em­pow­er­ing house­holds through ad­vice on all as­pects of home en­ergy ef­fi­ciency from small to large, what­ever the cir­cum­stance. We also of­fer ad­vice through en­ergy dropin surg­eries every Tues­day at the Or­mi­dale Pavil­ion, so if you’re not ready for a home visit or just have a few quick queries please pop in.

Work­ing in partnership with Home En­ergy Scot­land, Eco Savvy can con­nect you for fur­ther spe­cial­ist ad­vice on ap­ply­ing for in­ter­est free loans and get­ting ap­proval for Feed in Tar­iffs/Re­new­able Heat In­cen­tives, should you progress with re­new­able tech­nol­ogy in­stal­la­tion.

Whilst weather, en­ergy price hikes, and a rapidly chang­ing en­ergy mar­ket will never be in our con­trol, what we do have con­trol over is our own en­ergy ef­fi­ciency in­clud­ing how much, when, and what en­ergy we use. This is what the en­ergy team at Eco savvy want to help with so please take ad­van­tage of this ser­vice and get in touch!
