Warmer Kiwi Homes (WKH) is a government-funded programme run by EECA, which is designed to support New Zealand families to live in warmer, drier homes. This programme offers grants to eligible low-income or high-health need (as referred through the Healthy Homes Initiative) homeowners where the home is insulated, for the installation of a range of heating appliances. The majority of these heating appliances are heat pumps.
Since it started in July 2019, around 2,500 heat pumps have been installed under this programme. It is expected that the number of installations will increase in the coming year.
EECA, which runs the programme (Warmer Kiwi Homes), expects to provide funding for a further 12,000 heating appliances over the next two years. Consumer demand will determine final numbers.
In 2019, a Request for Quotation (RFQ) procurement process resulted in seven approved suppliers for single split non-ducted heat pumps which have been supplied to approved Heating Service Providers (installers) throughout the North and South Islands of New Zealand.
The aim of this procurement is to provide opportunities for additional suppliers to be approved, to confirm the eligibility of existing suppliers under this programme, and to allow existing approved heat pump suppliers to adjust their pricing.
1) There is a mandatory Supplier Briefing session by video conference for this RFQ on Fri 6 March and registrations are required by 5pm on Wed 4 March 2020.
2) Existing approved suppliers need to attend the Supplier Briefing and respond to this RFQ in order to continue to supply heat pumps under this programme.
This tender has been awarded.
