Local not-for-profit group, South Dartmoor Community Energy, are offering our parish free and impartial energy advice and help accessing grants.
SDCE offers advice over the phone or at a home visit funded by the LEAP scheme.
Advice offered on insulation, heating systems and controls, energy suppliers, switching tariffs, and grants. This includes home visits by volunteers from SDCE.
The grant system is complicated and these volunteers can help you. If you are in receipt of benefits or have a household income of below £35k after mortgage/rent/utilities you are probably eligible for energy efficiency grants which could include the cost of new improved insulation. Also, you could receive up to 10 energy efficient LED bulbs for free.
If you know a friend or neighbour who might qualify, and benefit from living in a warmer house whilst also lowering their carbon footprint, please tell them about this.
Call free on 0800 112 3044 or get in touch via their website
Sophie Phillips from SDCE will hopefully be coming along to a Staverton breakfast market soon. We’ll let you know when. You’ll be able to sign up for a home visit there.
