Carsphairn Local Electriciy Discount Scheme (LEDS)

What is LEDS?

In 2018 Carsphairn Community Council ran a pilot Local Energy Discount Scheme (LEDS), to ensure that all full-time residents of our Community Council area were able to gain tangible benefits from the wind farms operating in our area.

The payments made under the scheme were intended to help alleviate fuel poverty and ensure residents were financially assisted in paying energy related bills.

Application forms were posted to all addresses in the Carsphairn Community Council area and were available to download from this page. The scheme was advertised on the commuity notice boards, via Community Council meetings and was featured in the Galloway News.


The scheme is now closed and all eligible applicants should have received their payments.

The Carsphairn LEDS Team would value any feedback you may have in regards to our 2018 pilot scheme. Any comments made will be kept anonymous and will help the Community Council decide if the scheme should be run again, or extended, in future years.
