Energy Saving Trust manages Home Energy Scotland, a programme funded by the Scottish Government that provides free, impartial advice to help householders reduce fuel poverty and tackle climate change.
Home Energy Scotland also helps with advice around transport, renewables and water efficiency – delivered to householders through face-to-face engagement and, due to current Covid-19 pandemic restrictions, through successful webinars. They also offer a dedicated free phone line for householders.
In 2017, Home Energy Scotland teamed up with Scottish Water to help householders reduce their energy bills and carbon footprints by taking actions to save water.
The project targets specific areas in Scotland where water is more expensive to produce and distribute to households, or where there may be ‘water stress’ during prolonged dry spells. Through the project, householders in these areas receive free water saving packs that contain advice and devices, including regulated shower heads, kitchen tap aerators and garden hose guns.
