Greening Kyle was a two-year project funded by the Scottish Government through the Climate Challenge Fund. The project commenced in April 2014. The aim of the project was to reduce the carbon output in the area of the Kyle of Sutherland.
This was delivered through two main themes: home energy efficiency, and reduction of food waste. During the project clients made a lifetime saving £56,000 on their fuel bills and 30% of clients were lifted out of fuel poverty.
Thanks to a grant from EON Rosehall the team were able to continue to direct clients in fuel poverty to make an application to our ‘Helping Hand’ small grants scheme providing fuel poor households with much needed warmth.
