Dear Fellow Members,
Today, the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS), released information through the media intended to inform homeowners about the various means by which they may receive their Energy Bills Support Scheme (EBSS) grant.
Unfortunately, whilst today’s announcement will help those park home occupiers with a direct supply contract with an energy supplier, no information has been forthcoming about how those of you who purchase your energy through your park owner, will receive your EBSS grants.
For many months now IPHAS has been engaged with BEIS on this issue, and last month we teamed up with officials from AGE UK, who are now supporting our pursuit of answers from BEIS and the Energy Secretary. Some proposals have been put forwards but no final solutions have been notified to us as yet.
This morning, I made contact with the authorities requesting an update on an urgent basis. I am advised that BEIS are in the process of drawing up proposals for delivering the EBSS to park home residents. They have the money secured to ensure support can be delivered but they are still in the early stages of putting together a plan for delivery.
For the future, please keep your eye on our new website www.iphas.live for the latest information.
IPHAS WILL CONTINUE TO PRESS FOR ANSWERS ON YOUR BEHALF.
Ian Pye Chairman,
The Independent Park Home Advisory Service (2021) Ltd.
