It’s hard to be green in Nelson!
Nelson prides itself on being green. Our local city council has a number of initiatives aimed at promoting sustainability. They have an “Eco Building Advisor”, giving free information on sustainable building practices. They are really pushing solar water heating, for example by lending the installation cost for certain selected systems and waiving fees for building consents. But in practice, it’s really expensive to be green in Nelson!
