News-Wellington Regional Council makes funds available to help with insulation and heating upgrades.
From April 2010, ratepayers in the Greater Wellington region will be able to apply for up to $2600 to help with the cost of installing insulation or clean heating under EECA’s Warm Up New Zealand: Heat Smart Programme.
If you are a ratepayer with a house built before the year 2000 and are up to date with your rates you can apply. Repayments will be made via a “targeted rate” on your rates bill over nine years. The interest rate will be similar to a bank loan (presently around 7%).
