The Parish Council and associated Community Group of Tatenhill have been deliberating about whether to provide a direct subsidy to customers towards installation and whether they will as originally promised, provide a contribution to the infrastructure costs. (£6000)
During this time Kijoma has been subsidising the installation cost for the initial orders so the rate was £80 (standard installs). We have also installed all the infrastructure at our cost.
On the evening of the 10th of August, the Parish Council met and decided to provide a limited subsidy direct to confirmed customers but the original offer to contribute to the infrastructure was withdrawn.
To this effect Kijoma can no longer subsidise the installation side to the same extent as we have to keep the "Return on Investment" period realistic.
The installation rate will therefore increase to £140 (effectively £80 after the Council subsidy) for new orders with standard installations. Existing orders will be honoured at £80 and can still claim the subsidy, reducing their bill to £20. Those who originally ordered then declined when it came to installation will be charged at the new rate if they decide to re-order.
£140 is still a Kijoma subsidised rate as it remains less than the cost of installation.
We apologise for this but ultimately we were mislead by the Parish Council and their Letter of Intent did not result in its intended outcome.
