Bills from energy suppliers could be reduced for homeowners living in the Western Isles through additional funding from a government environmental body.
Teas and Taigh Blath is to receive extra money from the Scottish and Southern Carbon Emissions Reduction Target to enable it to install insulation in local communities and help residents reduce their fuel bills, reports news.stv.tv.
Almost 100 homes will be insulated and installed with a range of additional energy-saving measures over the course of a two-year period, using £126,000 worth of funding.
Councillor Norman A Macdonald told the website: "There is no doubt that this additional funding will help to progress the objectives of the fuel poverty strategy for the Western Isles."
He added that the funding could help to impact on the number of households living in fuel poverty in the Western Isles.
All the UK's major energy suppliers have announced price cuts in recent weeks, although they have been criticised for failing to match the scale of increases introduced throughout 2008.
