Insulation - EECA scheme

The Government has provided significant funding for homeowners to insulate their homes.  This is in the form of grants that are available to fund part of the cost of home insulation and energy efficiency measures such and heat pumps, solar heating etc.

As the grants only fund part of the cost EECA have been talking to other parties such as banks and councils to allow householders to borrow the balance of the required funding.

To take advantage of the scheme householders will have to contact approved ENERGYWISE providers in their area.

These are listed on the EECA website http://www.energywise.govt.nz.

The website also provides details of the EECA subsidy scheme.
