Energy Advice and Support for Households

Across Devon, Plymouth and Torbay, a network of community energy organisations (CEOs) provide free and impartial advice and support to householders. The CEOs are not for profit organisations, which work closely with local authorities and other frontline support agencies to provide holistic support and wherever possible access to grant funding. In some areas, additional crisis grants are available.
