Caithness Energy Advice Project
7 April 08
The Free Winter Warmth packs will be up for grabs during Ormlie Community Association’s latest awareness raising events, tacking fuel poverty and increasing energy efficiency for Caithness householders. The events are part of the Warm Homes Campaign Award Scheme which is one aspect of the Warm Homes Campaign, organized by National Energy Action (NEA) and Energy Action Scotland, which is taking place throughout the UK from the end of November. The campaign aims to raise awareness of the financial help available to people who cannot afford to heat their homes to try and reduce cold-related illnesses and excess winter deaths and is organised in association with eaga.
The dates, times and venues for OCA’s
events are listed below:

Louise Smith, Ormlie Community Association’s Project Manager for Renewable Energy, said, “We are delighted to have been given this opportunity to join the ranks of excellent projects that Scottish Power’s Energy People Trust have funded as part of their commitment to end fuel poverty. Our Energy SOS Project was established last year and has grown from strength to strength thanks to the commitment of staff, volunteers, partners and funders. It is one arm of the Caithness Energy Advice Project, the other being energy efficiency and renewables research in conjunction with Pentland Housing Association.

"The Caithness Energy Advice Project was established in 2006 and is now funded by the ScottishPower Energy People Trust and Communities Scotland Wider Role until March 2009. We employ three energy advisers who will visit you in your own home to help deal with energy matters such as reading meters, setting heating controls, reducing fuel bills and giving advice on a range of matters including grants and tariffs.
The project was established with the help of two students on secondment from North Highland College, Sharon Pottinger and Alison Middlemas. Funding from Communities Scotland's Scottish Communities Action Research Fund (SCARF) helped set up the project by encouraging volunteers to partner with the energy advice staff. We are still keen to work with volunteers who will receive training in energy issues-please contact us for further information.
The Caithness Energy Advice Team is on hand to help with your energy issues. Please call us."
