Kiwi's don't go in for insulation, double glazing or central heating! (and have power shortages)

It seems a bit surprising that so many kiwi homes have such poor insulation and double glazing is like the latest new thing, and many people still dont seem to bother with it. Yet at the same time, the demand for power is going up all the time New Zealand risks power shortage by 2008 with regular warnings of blackouts when demand exceeds supply.

Odd, I thought NZ had very green credentials, they dont seem to apply them much to energy efficient heating!

Perhaps people would do well to look at some of the CAT information - CAT Publications
