361 Community Energy is the North Devon Not-For-Profit organisation helping to reduce the carbon footprint of North Devon and Torridge. 361 Energy work with the Local Energy Advice Partnership (LEAP) to provide free home energy visits. Their advisors can help review your energy usage, energy tariffs, give you free energy- saving equipment such as LED lightbulbs and draught excluders. They can also help you access funding for loft and cavity insulation, combi boilers, solar panels and more.

The home energy visits have some very broad eligibility requirements and 69% of residents in North Devon qualify for a free energy visit. 361 Energy want to help as many people as possible by extending the service to anyone that either is already in, or is at risk of falling into fuel poverty. It is open to all types of householders – homeowners, private renters and social housing tenants

Last year the team completed 500 home energy visits but they have the capacity to complete much more across North Devon and Torridge.
