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: 90% of the cost of ceiling and underfloor insulation 90% 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).
