Equipment Energy Efficiency (E3)
Warmer Kiwi Homes
This programme makes New Zealand homes warmer, drier and healthier by offering grants for heaters and home insulation to low-income home owners.
Eligible people can claim
- 80% of the cost of ceiling and underfloor insulation.
- 80% of the cost of a heat pump.
Efficiency helps to smooth demand
The residential sector has a large number of small consumers and the dominant energy source is our highly renewable electricity system.
Households have a significant impact on our peak electricity use when electricity generation tends to be at its least renewable, and most expensive to produce (for example, winter evenings).
We want to increase the uptake of efficient LEDs in New Zealand homes to reduce carbon emissions and costs to households.
