Improving the energy efficiency of your home

Free energy efficiency improvements for lower-income householders across Devon and Torbay

Lower-income householders across Devon and Torbay are invited to apply for free energy efficiency improvements to their homes worth thousands of pounds thanks to new government funding.

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

The scheme will offer eligible householders the chance to improve the warmth and energy efficiency of their homes by ‘retrofitting’ them.
