Park homes are eligible for energy efficiency improvements under the Energy Company Obligation, which is worth £640m per year. Within this envelope, support was re-balanced from April 2017 towards the Affordable Warmth element, with an increased focus on tackling fuel poverty and supporting those on low incomes and vulnerable to cold.
Government has also taken action to ensure that financial support is available to park home residents through the Warm Home Discount Scheme. The scheme, now in its third year enables park home residents who pay for their electricity through their park or as part of their pitch fees to apply for a £140 rebate on their energy bill.
In addition, all pensioner households, including those living in park homes, receive £100-£300 through the Winter Fuel Payment and Government is also bringing an end to high energy prices by putting in place a price cap on standard variable and default tariffs.
