Dunedin City Council – Media Release
Warm Dunedin Trial Extended
This item was published on 31 May 2013.
The popular Warm Dunedin pilot programme has been extended for up to three months.
The Warm Dunedin targeted rate programme helps increase household warmth, health and comfort by providing a rates advance to help with the upfront costs of installing insulation and/or clean heating.
Warm Dunedin works alongside the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Authority (EECA) Warm Up New Zealand: Heat Smart programme, which offers Energywise funding for installing insulation. Other funding and assistance programmes are also available.
Dunedin City Council Energy Manager Neville Auton says applications open again on 1 June and are due to close on 31 August. If funding runs out before applications close, the programme will stop earlier.
Full information on the programme is available at www.dunedin.govt.nz/warmdunedin or phone Customer Services on 477 4000.
