EECA provides funding to make it easier for businesses and householders to choose energy efficiency and renewable energy.  

We currently offer funding for: 



Renewable energy


Many homes are cold are unhealthy because they don't have enough insulation.  A warm, dry home with well-installed insulation is healthier and easier to heat.

Warm Up New Zealand: Healthy Homes is a Government programme offering free insulation for low-income households at high health risk from cold, damp housing.

Find out more about the new insulation programme.
