EECA Insulation Subsidies

The current Warm Up New Zealand:Healthy Homes rental programme was set up by the New Zealand government to help make rental properties healthier, warmer and more energy efficient.

Smart Energy Solutions is an approved partner of the new EECA Energywise Warm Up New Zealand: Healthy Homes rental programme and has 50% insulation subsidies available^ for eligible rentals. The properties must:
