Bay of Plenty Regional Council’s Low Income Incentive Package

The Bay of Plenty Regional Council wants to establish the options and costs of packages that would incentivise low-income households to substitute non-compliant heating with clean heat appliances. The goal of those packages is to increase the take-up of clean-heat conversions among low income households and, thereby, reduce fine particulates in the Rotorua Urban Airshed within the limits of the National Environmental Standards for Air Quality for fine particulates.

The project is being undertaken by a cross-disciplinary team with members from CRESA, BRANZ, Public Policy and Research Ltd and Lois Easton Consulting Ltd.

Report included in an annex to the June 2011 minutes of the Bay of Plenty Regional Council’s Strategy, Policy and Planning Committee.
