Split the Bill

What does​ it fund?
South Waikato District Council will pay up to a $2,000 (or 50% of the total heating cost, whichever is the lowest) subsidy to remove a current non-compliant wood burner and then install a clean heat option. The remaining balance can be paid off immediately or through the rating system to be repaid over a nine year period. You can install as many clean heating appliances as you wish as long as ALL non-compliant wood burners are removed/decommissioned.

Clean heat options available under this scheme are: wood burner, heat pump; gas or pellet fire.

Insulation is not required however, it is strongly encouraged. If you want to insulate, then you must do this at the time of application for heating.​
