Curling club puts a freeze on rising energy costs

With help from our advisers and an interest-free loan, Murrayfield Curling Rink was able to save energy and improve facilities.

Murrayfield Curling Rink, home of Edinburgh Curling Club, is a seven-sheet curling facility located in the heart of Edinburgh.

Thanks to our independent, impartial support and funding from the SME interest-free loan, the business has been able to make several energy efficiency improvements to its facilities. This includes new LED lighting and cladding and a new heating and de-humidification system.

These improvements have not only reduced the club’s annual energy bill but have also helped to transform the facilities for the club’s members.

“‘Without the service's support, we wouldn’t have been able to achieve all the goals we were looking to achieve". Paul Stevenson, Director
