What you need to know

CARES is here to help make your faith building greener.

Installing low carbon or renewable technologies such as a heat pump or solar panels can help you cut your faith building’s energy bills and running costs, as well as its carbon footprint.

By generating your own clean energy, you’ll also be helping to tackle the global climate emergency and help Scotland reach its target of net zero emissions by 2045.
