The Energy Efficiency and Conservation Authority (EECA) is offering NZPIF members a 55% subsidy on a full house retrofit of insulation and other energy efficiency measures for any of your rental properties.
This offer is part of the EnergyWise home grants programme.

These measures will ensure your property stays warm and dry, uses less electricity and has a more efficient hot water system.
There are several criteria you, your rental property and your tenant need to meet before you can apply for the subsidy:
If you meet these criteria then fill in the application form here.
EECA has contracted Eco Insulation Ltd to carry out all of its full house retrofits, which means you don’t have to worry about finding someone to do the work. If your application is approved, Eco Insulation Ltd will contact you and your tenants to assess the property and provide a formal quote for the job. Once the retrofit is arranged, it will generally take 2-3 visits to complete.
The tenants do not need to move out, just be available to let the workers into the house
Upon completion of the retrofit, you will receive a certificate for your property, stating that it has successfully undergone a retrofit as part of the EnergyWise home grants programme.
