DCC update: Lower-income households invited to apply for free energy efficiency home improvements

If you have a household income of less than £30,000 a year, and live in Devon or Torbay, you may be eligible for free energy efficiency improvements to your home worth thousands of pounds.

Published: 18 June 2022

From this week you can check your eligibility and apply through the Cosy Devon website.

The scheme is being delivered by the Cosy Devon partnership, which consists of us, East Devon, Mid Devon, North Devon, South Hams, Teignbridge and Torridge District Councils, West Devon Borough, Exeter City, Plymouth City and Torbay Councils.

Upgrades could include underfloor and solid floor insulation; insulation to cavity, external and internal walls, and lofts; double glazing, draught proofing, ventilation solar panels and heat pumps.

It offers householders the chance to improve their homes by ensuring that they are warmer, less draughty, and less damp. And it helps reduce energy bills and lower a home’s carbon emissions.

You can read more about the scheme in the news story on our website.
