STRATHPEFFER SAVES PROJECT
Strathpeffer Community Council Strathpeffer Residents' Assoc.
The Strathpeffer Saves project started on 2nd April 2018 and will run until 30th August 2019. The aim is to reduce the carbon emissions of the Strathpeffer Community Centre by installing a range of energy efficiency measures.
The project will also help households in the Strathpeffer area to improve home energy efficiency and tackle fuel poverty, with project activities including home energy advice, visits and workshops. Additional initiatives will help the community to learn more about food growing and sourcing local food, while a trained Development Officer will be employed by the Centre to raise awareness of climate change and ways to take local action to tackle it.
Look out for workshops and activities throughout this year and next year!
