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.

Home insulation scheme

Insulation subsidy for 100 homes
By Rebecca Fox
Low-income Dunedin residents struggling to afford to insulate their homes may soon get the chance, thanks to a new subsidy. The subsidy, which could cover up to 75% of the cost of insulating a home, will be available to 100 Dunedin homes from March to June. It is an extension of the Otago Regional Council’s Clean Air Clean Heat programme in Central Otago. The Dunedin project, Clean Heat Healthy Homes, has funding from Energy Efficiency and Conservation Authority (EECA), Dunedin City Council, Aurora Energy and Otago Community Trust.

To qualify for the scheme, applicants must own their own home within greater Dunedin city, and have a Community Services Card. Priority will be given to high users of the health system. Application forms are available from both council offices.
