A business in Cumbernauld has been able to grow thanks to Warmworks Scotland, a scheme that has already helped 5,000 Scottish households to reduce their energy bills and make their homes more energy efficient.
Warmworks Scotland delivers the Scottish Government’s Warmer Homes Scotland scheme to households all across the country, and Omega Electrical is among those 30 installers to have helped transform people’s lives so far.
In total, Warmworks, a £224m joint venture between the Energy Saving Trust, Everwarm and Changeworks, has helped create more than 300 new jobs, including 60 apprenticeships, across the country – with all those working to carry out home improvements paid at least the Living Wage.
Launched in September 2015, Warmworks has helped transform the lives of more than 5,000 people so far, from upgrading boilers to installing a raft of home efficiency measures.
Stephen Bain of Omega Electrical said: “Omega has been working on the scheme since the very start and we’re proud to have been part of such a successful effort so far.
“Seeing the impact of the scheme, and being able to provide additional training and development opportunities to our staff has been great for business morale.”
Warmworks Scotland, formed in September 2015, operates a ‘customer-first’ approach in ensuring customers’ needs are addressed and accommodated throughout the customer journey; from the moment of referral through to the installation and inspection of energy saving improvements.
Ross Armstrong, Warmworks Scotland Contract Director said: “The help we’re providing is changing lives across Scotland every day. To reflect on what we’ve achieved in completing 5,000households makes the whole team proud, but we know that there’s still so much more to be done. Our focus is going to be on continuing to put our customers first and delivering a first-class experience, so that they can have peace of mind as well as a warm home.”
