To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, how many installers have accreditation to carry out insulation on park homes for the purposes of the Green Homes Grant 2020; if he will ensure that park home owners are informed of the identity of certified installers; and if he will make a statement.
23 October 2020
As of 15:00 on 20 October, there were 2 businesses which are TrustMark registered and certified to install insulation measures in park homes under the Green Homes Grant Voucher Scheme.
We are working with trade and certification bodies to support the accreditation of installers as quickly as possible. BEIS has launched a £6.9 million skills competition to provide training opportunities for the energy efficiency and low carbon heating supply chains to deliver works and scale up to meet additional consumer demand.
Park homeowners are able to search for suitably certified installers to insulate their properties on the Simple Energy Advice website.
