Te Whare Oranga Ngakau

Website

Te Whare Oranga Ngakau (TWON) is a kaupapa Māori drug and alcohol residential rehabilitation centre in Rotorua run by Te Utuhina Manaakitanga Trust. TWON support those they work with by providing Hauora Wānanga – health education and information from a Māori perspective which celebrates and promote an understanding of a holistic Māori view of health.  

The Trust took over a partially abandoned building on the edge of Rotorua and converted it into a full residential facility, catering to all the needs of up to 20 people at a time. Alongside the value of manaakitanga the Trust has demonstrated strong kaitiakitanga by specifying an Apricus solar hot water system and a 5kW PV electric system. The combination of the technologies provides a large proportion of the buildings energy requirements in a low carbon, renewable way.

The Apricus system uses eight ETC30 collectors in two arrays of four on the roof. The low pitch roof has required the collectors to be raised slightly for optimum performance. There is 1,150L solar hot water cylinder and a Rinnai Demand Duo instantaneous gas water heater to ensure they never run out of hot water.  

The system includes live monitoring to demonstrate the powerful environmental and economic benefits to the Trust, their clients and the wider community.
