Devon County Council has united with E.ON to deliver an energy saving scheme that will see millions invested in homes across the region.

Including nine other local authorities, the CosyDevon scheme will offer up to 7,000 free or subsidised insulation and heating measures to homes in Devon.

Launching the scheme, Cllr Andrew Leadbetter, Devon County Council’s cabinet member responsibility for economic growth, said: ‘This is great news for Devon, not only for the benefits it brings in energy efficiency, but also for its job creation for the local economy.

‘Behind the contract with E.ON will be a team of people within Devon helping to administer the scheme, as well as a network of local firms ready to deliver the home improvements.

‘It will also employ local expertise, including local community groups and charities, to promote the scheme to Devon residents.’

Don Leiper, director of energy efficiency at E.ON, added: ‘I’m immensely proud that E.ON has been part of CosyDevon since its launch and that we have worked with our colleagues in local authorities across Devon to provide energy saving help to thousands of families in that time.

‘This scheme will bring significant benefits in making our homes more energy efficient, helping people to reduce their energy consumption and cut their bills. I hope that many more will get in touch to see what help is on offer.’
