Devon homes set to benefit from £725k energy efficiency improvements
Close to 150 homes across Devon are set to receive energy efficiency improvements worth a total estimate of £725k thanks to a joint project by the Energy Saving Trust (EST), though its “Ready for Retrofit” programme and housing provider DCH.
DCH (formerly Devon & Cornwall Housing) is the largest provider of affordable homes working in the south west; in the top 30 of housing associations nationally by stock size with over 21,000 homes in management.
The improvements will lead to significant reductions in energy bills, carbon emissions and improved comfort levels for the residents of almost 150 DCH homes in Devon. Ready for Retrofit has invested £508k into the programme combined with £217k investment by DCH, bringing the total investment to £725k.
Doug Stein, Group Director of Asset Management at DCH said:
“The expertise and financial strength of DCH has enabled us to work in partnership with the Ready for Retrofit funding team so that we can accelerate our program of energy efficiency improvements to our housing stock in Devon. Improving the energy performance of our houses is the best way we can help our residents keep their homes warm and their fuel bills down.”
