Looking at Template::Provider::Encoding description:

"Template::Provider::Encoding is a Template Provider subclass to
decode template using its declaration. You have to declare encoding of
the template in the head (1st line) of template using (fake) encoding
TT plugin. Otherwise the template is handled as utf-8."

So if you want utf8 you just need to use T::P::E and don't need to
explicitly specify the encoding.
