Age UK

The AGE UK’s public policy report on energy A social tariff for off grid and off domestic supply customers”, addresses in Chapter seven what has become known as the ‘commercial supply trap’. This describes the position of many Park Homeowners who do not benefit from having a direct contract with an Energy supply company.

IPHAS first raised this topic in February 2022, and with AGE UK support, we put our concerns to the Energy Regulator, Ofgem, and the Departments for Energy Security and Net-Zero (DESNZ), and Levelling Up, Housing and Communities (DLUHC). This lobbying is described in more detail in the latest edition of the IPHAS NEWSLETTER – THE ADVISOR, which is currently on distribution, and also available on this website.
