Default Hi please let me if I shouldn't be here!

Hi everyone, first I wanted to be honest and say I'm an independent park specialist for utilities, primarily on the energy side. I've spent six years delving into all the nooks and crannies to dig out all those little details we sometimes miss.

I definitely don't want to spam, just educate and contribute advice without selling where I can. I just wanted to know whether people want me here or not, being very respectful of rules on here and not wanting to upset anyone, Darren moderator included.

Hi Darren and everyone else on here, thanks for the warm welcome.

As a park energy specialist my mission is to help wipe out energy costs as far as possible - so that static owners pay the bare minimum.

As a person I'm motivated to help the environment and I feel that parks can set an example for the wider UK community.

In the next dozen years everything must change. Parks will have to move away from paying suppliers for electricity which is going to go absolutely through the roof price wise due to govt taxation etc.

Parks must massively cut their usage, static by static, which is achievable today btw

Then plug solar, wind into energy storage units which the national grid is paying out large financial incentives for.

Without going on about this, all parks should be micro grids where they make and store their own energy and massively reduce their usage of any power they have to buy from suppliers.

Static owners are starting to learn about this and are making park owners aware of these alternatives.

All the responsible park owners are already on the case as they're smart enough to think ahead and keep their site attractive to customers.

Hope I can help everyone move to a better way for energy

If you've read this thank you!

Default climate change levy exemption

climate change levy is charged to parks (and therefore passed on to you) at around 0.6 pence on each unit of electricity. The bad news is this is jumping by around 50% in 2019.

CCL is also applied to bulk tank LPG and natural gas supplies at a different rate. Again you end up paying.

Now think of how much this adds to your total bill ?!


I've lost count of the number of park owners I have helped to become exempt from CCL. I don't charge anything for the advice, I just point them in the right direction and let them claim themselves.

My question is, would you like to know how CCL exemption works so you can pass on the info to parks and save yourself from the added energy expense ?

to the forum Adam. I would certainly like to know how the exemptions work. At home, I have a solar water heating system and haven't paid for hot water since it was installed. We have a 360 Lt tank, so even if we have a few cloudy days we are OK. In the summer we have family over to stay with us and we never need to use our back up system.

I like anything that saves energy and costs.

Thanks for the warm welcome. Great to see other people on board with energy saving. I've just PMd you a link to my free online guide rather than posting it up here as that may be considered spam?

Happy to answer any questions by PM or on this thread
