Kirkcaldy community buildings set to save energy
Two well-used Kirkcaldy community centres have been awarded funding from the Scottish Government’s Climate Challenge Fund, to reduce their energy costs and carbon footprints.
Linktown Community Action Centre’s ‘Philp Hall Energy Challenge’ project will install energy efficient measures in the Philp Hall on Links Street, making the building easier to heat, and reducing its energy usage and running costs. The St Bryce Kirk Centre will upgrade lighting, insulation and draught-proofing to slash the Centre’s energy consumption and carbon emissions through the ‘Action On Energy’ project.
Both projects will also work with Greener Kirkcaldy to help their local communities to reduce their own energy consumption, through programmes of home energy advice visits, events and workshops.
Greener Kirkcaldy also offers home energy advice visits throughout Fife, through the Cosy Kingdom service. For more information or to make an appointment see www.www.greenerkirkcaldy.org.uk/cosy-kirkcaldy.|
