Free insulation is available for both owner occupied and rental housing if the owner/occupier has a community services card.  A local community group is promoting this available fund in partnership with Kapiti Coast District Council’s eco-design adviser.   A curtain bank was recently promoted by the Kapiti Coast District Council which provides free second-hand curtains (with good insulation properties) for households.  Twenty-five Otaki households received assistance with curtains for the winter.
