Whakatane: Up to 90% insulation subsidies STILL available.      Be Quick!

EECA Warm Up NZ

Up to 90% insulation funding is available from Eastern Bay Energy Trust, EECA and Smart Energy Solutions to help eligible Whakatane & Eastern Bay homeowners insulate their homes and rental properties.

The Eastern Bay areas is one of the few regions of the country where insulation subsidies are STILL available for homeowners.  

The continued funding is thanks to the Eastern Bay Energy Trust (EBET), EECA and Smart Energy Solutions working together to provide homeowners up to 90% funding and landlords up to 65% funding with eligible properties in Eastern Bay of Plenty homes, including Whakatane and surrounding areas.

Over the past 4 years we have in conjunction with EBET and EECA helped homeowners and tenants in the region improve the warmth, comfort and energy efficiency of their homes.
