Whakatane - we're your one-stop-shop for home energy efficiency


We're your local energy efficiency experts

Our team covers the EBOP and are based in Whakatane, led by Carl Vujnovich, and can help all homeowners and landlords with their home energy efficiency needs - insulation, heating, ventilation, hot water management solutions, thermal window film, LED downlights, and more.

In July 2012 we purchased the Energy Options insulation brand in the Eastern Bay of Plenty, operating out of our Whakatane office. We're proud to work with the Eastern Bay Energy Trust and EECA to help local homeowners and tenants improve the warmth, comfort and energy efficiency of their homes.

Eastern Bay of Plenty homeowners and landlords can benefit from:

  • 90% OFF INSULATION (capped at $3,000) if you have a Community Services Card or CSC-endorsed SuperGold Card; or a demonstrable income-related need and one or more occupants has a high-health need*, OR
  • 50% OFF INSULATION (capped at $2,500) for all other homeowners and tenants.

Landlords can get:

  • 60% OFF INSULATION if your rental property was built before 2000 and:
