An increasing number of homeowners may be inspired to switch energy suppliers in a bid to improve their carbon footprint, as new research has revealed a rise in environmental awareness.
The Carrick Gazette reports how one in three local residents claim they would install energy-efficient features in order to help save the planet.
A survey by the Federation of Master Builders (FMB) found more than a fifth of households would pay for solar panels and wind turbines in order to reduce carbon emissions.
Meanwhile, ten per cent said they would consider updating energy measures in order to modernise their home, while nearly 70 per cent would do so to add value to their property and counter rising energy costs.
The FMB's Scottish regional director Grahame Barn said: "Knowledge of green technologies is now part and parcel of many good builders' toolkits as homeowners consider energy efficient options."
Elsewhere, a desire to help reduce carbon emissions has led to Greenhill Primary School in the UK achieving an Energy Performance Rating of A+.
