Hubbub & OVO trial street-wide energy efficiency programme in Glasgow
Environmental charity Hubbub has announced a new partnerships with the solutions arm of energy supplier OVO to find a street of households in Glasgow and help them reduce energy bills through installations and behaviour change methods.
“We’re really keen to discover what is possible when a community comes together to tackle energy use in the home. This might include economies of scale by multiple houses on the same street carrying out the same work or be as simple as sharing ideas and information.”– Hubbub’s co-founder Gavin Ellis
The project will see OVO Energy Solutions and on-the-ground experts work with the selected street to educate households on what actions and improvements can save the most money on energy bills.
Residents will also be able to choose from improvements in the form of installations, supported where possible by grants. These include solid wall insulation, loft insulation, underfloor insulation, upgrading heating systems, upgrading windows and energy-efficient lighting.
