Energy efficiency survey to drop through letterboxes
An Orkney-wide energy efficiency survey will be dropping through letter boxes across the county in the coming weeks, with those who complete it in with a chance of winning a cash prize.
“We are working alongside various partners to improve energy efficiency, tackle fuel poverty and further enhance Orkney’s position as the forerunner in the fields of renewable and sustainable energy,” said Luke Fraser, from Orkney Islands Council’s Education, Leisure and Housing service.
“The survey is designed to provide invaluable information to help us do this, ensuring all of our efforts are focussed as effectively as possible.
“It is being sent to every home in our local community and we would be very grateful if householders take the time to fill in the form and return it to us in the pre-paid envelope provided.”
Alternatively, the Orkney Household Energy Efficiency Survey can be completed online at: www.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/domesticenergy
All householders who provide their name, address and postcode will be entered in a prize draw, with six prizes of £100 to be awarded, courtesy of two of the partners involved in the survey, Aquatera and Firefly Energi (Orkney).
The information the survey provides will help with the targeting of future insultation and heating programmes in Orkney, aid the development of a Local Heat and Energy Efficiency Scheme for the islands, and maximise the benefits of the multi-partner ReFLEX Orkney project, which is led by the European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC).
Householders are asked to complete and return their survey forms by 5pm on Friday, September 27.
