Free Boiler Grants in West Devon & South Hams
West Devon Borough Council and South Hams District Council have introduced a new carbon reducing, energy saving funding scheme. The purpose of the funding is to reduce carbon emissions throughout the borough, something both councils feel is an important issue to tackle, and provide help to householders wherever possible.
Carbon Emissions are more prevalent in households that are off mains gas and properties without adequate insulation. Both councils have truly opened this out to most households in the borough, as unlike some previous government incentives, the grant is more dependent on the property less on the financial status of its occupants - see qualifying criteria below. *
The criteria set out for qualification for this scheme are quite broad and the intention is to make the funding available to the widest number of people so far in any scheme of this kind.
Saving Energy Group are working with a number of Government Accredited Installers in these districts, and are bringing awareness to residents of what is on offer, applying for funding and seeing the process through to installation of the appropriate measures.
