Lower-income householders across Devon can benefit from free energy efficiency improvements to their home worth thousands of pounds.

Councils in the region are offering homeowners and tenants the chance to save on energy bills and lower the emissions of their property.

Heat Devon, funded by Government, is available to Devon residents who have an annual household income of less than £30,000.

If you are a homeowner, and live in that property, you can apply for grants of up to £10,000.

Tenants of rented properties can apply for grants of up to £5,000 with the landlord expected to contribute at least one third towards the cost of the work.

How is this helping Devon reach net-zero?

More than 40% of Devon’s greenhouse gas emissions are caused by the buildings we live and work in. Making them as efficient as possible and installing renewable energy technology will help eliminate emissions.
