Changeworks worked with Moray Council to install energy efficiency measures in their housing stock with funding from the Social Housing Net Zero Fund.
The project provided tenants with more energy-efficient heating systems to lower energy bills and reduce carbon emissions. We acted as the managing agent, engaging with tenants, overseeing installations and quality assurance, as well as providing post-install support.
Energy efficiency at scale
The total funding was £2.6 million to help make 120 homes warmer and more energy efficient. Along with insulation where needed, all 120 homes received an Air Source Heat Pump and Solar PV and battery storage. This is the largest Air Source Heat Pump project to date delivered by Changeworks. We deliver Moray’s EES: ABS programme and will also be working with Moray Council on another net zero project.
“I welcomed the opportunity for eligible tenants to have their heating systems upgraded through the scheme. Not only will it help to tackle climate change but will help with the rising energy costs facing them and everyone else here in Moray.” Cllr Louise Nicol, Chair of Moray Council’s Housing and Community Safety Committee
“The fitters/installers were all really friendly and answered any issues I had.” Moray Council tenant
Creating positive outcomes for tenants
Changeworks’ Affordable Warmth team provided a wraparound service to ensure tenants felt confident in how to use their new systems. This included hosting events, as well as home visits and follow up support from advisors.
“All is good so far, I seem to be spending less money on topping up the prepayment meter.” Moray Council tenant
