EnergyMate is all about helping ahānau get the most out of their electricity. For some, that’s a reduced power bill, for others, it’s a warmer, drier, healthier home. EnergyMate is delivered through in-home coaching and community hui by EnergyMate coaches. All EnergyMate coaches are community-based financial mentors who are trained through an energy hardship training module to equip them to provide education and support. Following the success of the initial pilot in 2019, EnergyMate is operating in 13 locations across Aotearoa, and to date has supported almost 1,000 households with energy advice and targeted support.
