Since 2004 MainPower has been offering support to home insulation initiatives in the region. We ran the Warm Homes Makeover Project, Warm Up Kaikoura and sponsored the Warm Families Programme. Together, these initiatives assisted well over 1,000 households to make their homes warmer, drier and healthier. MainPower continues to offer support in this area by partnering with Community Energy Action, a charitable trust that provides insulation in low income households in North Canterbury and Kaikoura.
Anyone who wants their home insulated should contact Community Energy Action on 0800 GET WARM (0800 438 9276).
Home Energy Checks
MainPower also supports Community Energy Action’s Energy Advice Service. Available for all incomes, homeowners and tenants, the no cost, independent service gives practical information over the phone, on making your home more energy efficient. A Home Energy Check (home visit) by one of their advisers is also available free of charge to North Canterbury residents with tips to make homes warmer, drier and more energy efficient.
