Māori & Public Housing Renewable Energy Fund

Source: IEA/IRENA Renewables Policies Database
Last updated: 13 July 2021

Solar panels and other renewable technology will support more than 200 homes of kaumatua, papakainga and Maori-owned rentals to provide cheaper power, better quality of homes, and valuable data. The projects help set up families and small communities with the long-term benefits of things like solar panels as a low-cost.

The small scale projects will generate approximately 700 KW of solar electricity and provide cheaper power to more than 200 households, with many using innovative micro-grid solutions.

Fifteen initiatives will receive funding for renewable energy projects in the Fund’s first round ($2.8m). In total $14 million will go to renewable energy projects for Māori housing over the next four years.
