How we support residents to save energy in their homes

We have conducted more than 600 home energy audits on the southside of Glasgow to support residents save energy. Each home is different and the way residents use energy in their homes’ varies. We have collected a few case studies together to show the range of energy related issues we have tackled.

Energy case studies

This booklet includes a collection of five case studies which explain how South Seeds has helped residents save energy or sort out energy bills. We were able to deliver this work to save energy and save carbon through funding from the Scottish Government’s Climate Challenge fund.  

Improving Victorian tenement windows

Last year a South Seeds project dramatically improved the lives of residents in Victorian Govanhill tenements by upgrading or replacing their broken and draughty windows.

Supporting migrants to understand our energy system

More than 20 migrants a week drop in to the South Seeds office for support to tackle a wide range of issues with their domestic gas and electricity supply – from no heating, to tampered meters or the debts of former residents.
