  • The energy survey’s 20 multi-choice questions take fewer than five minutes and cover topics such as what energy sources people use to heat their homes and cook, affordability, solar power, and awareness of Warmer Kiwi Homes funding and rental home compliance with Healthy Homes standards.

    Responses to the survey will also help with understanding impacts on living costs and people’s preferences for sustainable energy solutions.

    The survey is supported by Queenstown Lakes District Council. The overall results will be fed back to our Resilience and Climate Action team to help with Council planning and decision making.

    If you’d like to talk in person about energy use and options, Mana Tāhuna also welcome people to get in touch via

    Responses to the survey will be securely managed and analysed by Rewiring Aotearoa and then reported, without personal details, to QLDC.
