Monday 25th March marked the official launch of Tighean Innse Gall’s Energy in Transition project. Project Officers Alana Murray and Finlay Maclennan will be up and down the Western Isles aiming to lower 1000 householders’ energy bills by 5% in the next two years.

Energy in transition in the Western Isles empowers consumers to make informed choices about how they use, benefit the most from and pay for electricity in the home.  We will conduct the most extensive energy roadshow and advice home visit programme ever undertaken in the Outer Hebrides.

How will we do this? We will purchase a highly visible branded electric car, kitted with energising information and sparky consumer resources, this is an essential part of our project.

Energy Services Director Dan Morrison commented. “We are delighted to have Alana and Finlay delivering this extensive and ambitious project.

"The team will be visiting every area, proportionally, from Vatersay to the Port of Ness to ensure that everyone is helped in taking action in lowering their energy costs. We are excited to be getting out on the road to meet people, of all age groups, and to offer them bespoke energy advice, which will help in ensuring that they live affordable, healthier, and more sustainable lives.”
