Chris Pursues Energy Bills Rebate For Park Homes Residents
To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, with reference to the Energy Bills support scheme factsheet, updated on his Department's website on 1 November 2022, whether park home owners will receive support via the Energy Bill Relief Scheme where park home residents are not on a standard electricity contract; and if he will set out how those arrangements (a) will operate and (b) begin.
The Energy Bill Relief Scheme will provide a discount on energy bills for eligible non-domestic customers. Where an eligible intermediary purchases electricity or gas on behalf of an end user, such as a park home site owner may do for their residents, the intermediary will be required to pass on any discount received to the end user. Further guidance on this has been published at https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/pass-through-requirements-for-energy-price-support-provided-to-intermediaries.
