Schemes that can help!
The Warm Homes Clean Air scheme is for people who are community service card holders and who meet the EECA (Energy Efficiency Conservation Authority) criteria. Priority is given to people who have respiratory issues and children living in the home. Phone Marnie on 07 885 0711. The Heat Swap scheme is for people who don’t qualify for the Warm Homes Scheme. Under this scheme Council pays for your new heating appliance(s) and the removal of the old ones, and you pay Council back on your rates over the next 10 years. So there is NO capital outlay. Phone Martin on 07 885 0734. In addition to council schemes central government has clean air grants available through approved suppliers. Visit www.eeca.govt.nz for more information on these schemes.
