The scheme is available to Devon residents who have an annual combined household income of less than £30,000 and whose homes have an energy Performance Certificate rating of E, F or G.
If you are a homeowner, and live in that property, you can access funding to cover 100 per cent of costs to retrofit your home (up to a cap). Tenants of rented properties can also apply for grants up to a cap, with the landlord expected to contribute at least one third towards the cost of the work.
Upgrades could include underfloor and solid floor insulation to cavity, external and internal walls, and lofts; double glazing, draught proofing, ventilation solar panels and heat pumps.
If you qualify, your home will have to be assessed to determine which energy efficiency measures could be installed. The initiative has a quality assurance plan in place to make sure that works are done properly and deliver the benefits and savings expected.
The options will then be discussed with you before a final decision is reached.
