What We Do

From a pilot scheme in the Drumbane/Upperchurch community in rural Tipperary in 2012/2013, a nascent ECTC was formed in 2014, as 4 communities came together to carry out energy efficiency works on older houses and community buildings, leveraging grants from the SEAI under the Better Energy Communities scheme. 111 houses and 2 community buildings were upgraded, receiving a grant of €643k and generating 1GWh (Gigawatt/hour) in energy savings.

With this success, ECTC was formally founded in 2015 and grew to include 14 communities. The board of ECTC is made up of unpaid, volunteer directors from the participating communities as well as one each from North Tipperary LEADER Partnership (NTLP) and the Tipperary Energy Agency (TEA).

Testimonials

The whole process from start to finish was a dream, Paul O Brien from Sola made the experience so easy for me. He helped with every aspect from application to finishing touches. He almost acted as project manager and organised contractors and kept them efficient. The standard of work  that was done was amazing, the house had a lot of mould and rising damp, it was freezing cold as the insulation was very poor and was in bad need of upgrading, and this wouldn’t have been possible without the help of SEAI and Tipperary Co-operative upgrade works. I am so grateful to these two groups as I was given a comfortable,warm and energy efficient house. Its lovely to come home to a warm house in the evening. The air quality is has improved hugely also, as my daughter has asthma and finds a big difference when shes in the house for long periods. Also having the convenience of just one bill now is a big help to me. Overall this experience was such a positive one and I would encourage anyone that might be eligible to apply, it has changed my life for the better and I am eternally grateful.
