Community Energy Action

CEA helps create warm, dry, healthy homes for all in our community by providing insulation, free curtains and free energy advice.


Community Energy Action (CEA) is a charitable trust committed to healthy homes, with a focus on keeping our most vulnerable warm.

We provide free or subsidised insulation, free recycled curtains, independent energy advice and help making earthquake damaged homes warmer.

In 2014 CEA improved the lives of an estimated 7,500 people in Canterbury.

Your support helps us continue our work creating warm and healthy homes for all Cantabrians.

More about us

Community Energy Action is a Christchurch-based Canterbury charitable trust committed to providing warm, dry and healthy homes for all.

Our main activity is the installation of insulation and heating in the homes of all incomes with surpluses going to additional assistance for vulnerable people on low incomes.

We also run a Curtain Bank which recycles lined and thermal curtains into the homes of those on low incomes and we provide free home energy efficiency advice for all households through our website and a free phone service. In our shop and through our website we sell DIY home energy efficiency products.

We have been keeping our community warm for over twenty years and have installed insulation in more than 20,000 Canterbury homes.
