Energy saving surgery to be held in Fraserburgh

Residents of Fraserburgh will be able to benefit from energy saving tips offered by experts in a surgerylater this year.

The Energy Saving Scotland information sessions, which will be held throughout the North-east, will offer advice on the best ways to stop wasting energy and money, and help fight climate change.

Specialists will be on hand to offer advice on energy saving measures for the home from simple tips for saving water and electricity, to detailed information on how to insulate every area of the home, reduce household waste and help source energy efficient applications for the home.

It is also a chance for residents to find out about any financial assistance that may be available to install insulation or new heating systems.

Anyone interested in going one step further and generating their own energy can also get advice from Energy Saving Scotland. Residents can organise free home visits to find out which renewable technologies are suited to their property and the best ways to get them installed.

Vice Chair of the Infrastructure Services Committee, Councillor Alan Buchan, said: “I would urge householders to take advantage of the free Energy Saving Surgeries and particularly the advice of experts who will be on hand at the sessions across Aberdeenshire.”

The session, to be held in September 17, will take place at Mid Street from 10am.
