Update from Community Energy Action: July 2017

Wednesday, July 19, 2017   Posted in: Newsletters By: Administrator With tags: newsletter, housing, heating, Community Groups

Facing the Winter Rush

Winter is a busy time for many of our referrer organisations, and it’s also a tough time for many of our clients. By collaborating we can ensure that we help as many vulnerable people in our community as possible. CEA assists those clients who struggle to keep warm, particularly at this time of year.

New insulation subsidies now available

The Government through EECA has just extended the criteria for insulation subsidies, to include vulnerable homeowners.

Up to 50 percent subsidy is available for:

  • Homeowners with a Community Services Card (CSC);
  • Landlords whose tenants have a Community Services Card; or
  • Households that are less than $20,000 over the CSC threshold, and have a health condition. Both tenants and homeowners that fit this criteria are eligible.

CEA: Always providing free energy advice

With the recent news that one-third of kiwis opt to not heat their homes in order to try save money, it is more important than ever for struggling households to get in touch with us.

Our trained energy advisors can help with a number of energy efficiency problems, including high power bills, best practice for using heating appliances, how to treat and prevent mould and condensation, and more.

Customers can call, email, or visit our office to get help with their home energy.

There is always something CEA can do to help

Whether its advice, free, recycled, good quality curtains, insulation, or even a hot water bottle, there is always something we can do to help people that are struggling to keep warm.

We have a wide range of services, and the best starting point is to give us a call. Our goal is warm, dry, healthy, sustainable homes for everyone in our community.

Email Emily at CEA if you would like brochures or posters about CEA services to help inform your clients (emily[at]cea.co.nz).
