Welcome to The HEAT Project…
The HEAT Project was started in 2017 out of an idea formed by the Blairgowrie Climate Café.
Initially with funding from the Scottish Government Climate Action Fund, we have been providing free, impartial advice on reducing household energy use for over 3 years.
Over that time, we have Given advice to over 250 households. Made over 150 home visits
Helped reduce annual energy bills by over 15%. Reduced total annual CO2 emissions by over 1600 tonnes. Seen the installation of 38 wall and roof insulation schemes.Two Air Source Heat Pumps.Five Solar electric schemes. Twenty Woodburning stoves.
Since April this year, we have been funded by the Safe Deposits Scotland Charitable Trust. With their generous funding, we have expanded out project area to include Coupar Angus, Blairgowrie and Rattray, Pitlochry, Dunkeld and Birnam and Aberfeldy – and all areas in between.We can now offer Covid 19 safe advice to private landlords and tenants in this area – free, independent, impartial and useful.
The HEAT Project, part of Blairgowrie and Rattray Development Trust, has been awarded a grant of £99,045 over two years from Ofgem’s Energy Industry Voluntary Redress Scheme.
We will continue to offer professional, effective, efficient, and reliable service to many more households in North Eastern and Highland Perthshire for a further two years.
