How the loan works

If you’re already a Kiwibank Home Loan customer, we’ll waive the fee to top-up your home loan.

If you’re building a new house that has a sustainable energy system included in the cost of the property, a portion of your home loan will count as the Sustainable Energy Loan and our contributions will be added to that.
