Have a cuppa and we’ll tell you about our street.

To­mor­row Street’s a lit­tle dif­fer­ent to the oth­ers round here. Lo­cated on Auck­land’s North Shore, we’re New Zealand’s first ad­vanced en­ergy neigh­bour­hood. The idea be­hind To­mor­row Street is to fo­cus on in­no­va­tion and en­ergy ef­fi­ciency and trial a va­ri­ety of ground­break­ing prod­ucts and ser­vices to see what works.

Th­ese are our lovely neigh­bours.

Our neigh­bours range from sin­gles, to cou­ples, to fam­i­lies. And they’ve all re­ceived en­ergy as­sess­ments and im­prove­ments from Ge­n­e­sis En­ergy to help their homes be­come more en­ergy ef­fi­cient. Th­ese im­prove­ments in­cluded things like in­su­la­tion, en­ergy ef­fi­cient ap­pli­ances and in­su­lat­ing win­dow film.

Let’s take a lit­tle tour of the house.

Ge­n­e­sis En­ergy asked us to trial a home en­ergy man­age­ment sys­tem called homeiQ. This nifty lit­tle de­vice lets us mon­i­tor and con­trol our en­ergy us­age re­motely via a com­puter or smart­phone. It’s a look into a smarter and more en­ergy ef­fi­cient fu­ture, where we could all en­joy greater con­trol over our en­ergy us­age.

Keep up-to-date with To­mor­row Street.

Over the next 18 months Ge­n­e­sis En­ergy will keep rolling out in­no­va­tive prod­ucts to the To­mor­row Street house­holds. If you’re in­ter­ested in fol­low­ing To­mor­row Street’s progress then sign up for our quar­terly Streetwise news­let­ter or weekly blog at
