Electric Blanket Testing

To help ensure you can sleep safe on cold nights with the comfort of an electric blanket, the Hawke’s Bay Power Consumers’ Trust subsidises electric blanket testing for Hawke’s Bay power consumers.

You can take your electric blankets to one of these local businesses, and they will check the wiring and ensure it is safe for you to use.

Normally this service costs $16 per blanket, but the Trust has subsidised this by 50%, so all you will need to pay is $8 per electric blanket, to ensure you and your family can sleep safe and warm this winter.

Home Insulation

The Trust provides funding to Smart Energy Solutions to subsidise the cost of its consumers insulating their houses. Smart Energy also source funding through ECCA and their own Trust, Cosy Kiwi.

Together with the Trusts funding gives some consumers a discount of
up to 70% OFF the cost of the insulation.

The insulation programme is managed by Smart Energy Solutions and any consumer wishing to discuss their eligibility or to seek a quote should contact them direct on 0800 888 766. The subsidy is available to both home owners and landlords.
