Keep Warm and Save Energy!
Lochaber Environmental Group are offering free energy surveys during 2020/21 to households and businesses in Lochaber. The energy surveys are part of the Low Carbon Lochaber project, funded by the Scottish Government’s Climate Challenge Fund, to help people in Lochaber reduce their carbon footprint.
COVID-19 update: Due to the pandemic and the current government restrictions, we are unable to visit homes and businesses to conduct energy surveys at the moment.
However, please do get in touch as we are still here to help! We can…
- help you monitor your bills
- conduct a home survey over Zoom and advise on energy efficiency
- Offer impartial advice on energy. If we don’t know the answer, we work in partnership with Home Energy Scotland and will get back to you as soon as possible.
Please also keep an eye on our Events page, as we are hosting some online discussions regarding energy tariffs and renewables, with more in the pipeline!

Home Energy Surveys:
Our energy advisors will come along to your house and survey the house with our thermal imaging camera to check for any cold spots. They will also install a temporary energy monitor to see how and when you use energy. At a second visit they will bring back a report on their findings and offer you some advice and guidance on where you can make improvements. Improvements are often a combination of behaviour change and physical installations. Physical changes can be as simple as adding draught proofing or replacing your lights with LED’s or if you are looking to make even bigger improvements, we will also advise you on wall/loft insulation and renewable energy.
