What We Do

The Whitlawburn Community Energy Project is here to save you money on your energy bills by offering personal, practical advice on ways you can save energy in your home.

We provide three ways in which we can give you information and advice on how to save energy, reduce your bills and help tackle climate change in Scotland.

Drop in information service

Our energy drop in sessions are here to answer any queries you have for your home, these can be "What does this mean on my electricity bill", "How do I program my thermostat" or any other question you feel is relevant to your circumstances.

The sessions run from 1pm to 2pm on Mondays and Wednesdays, no need to book just pop on by and we will help you out.
