“The event clashes with the Round Ireland Yacht race start but we hope that we can draw in many of the visitors that will be in the town,” said Andrew Lawless of Wicklow Tidy Towns.

“At this stage we expect 16 electric vehicles from 10 dealerships, an electric bike, installers of insulation, solar power, heat pumps, important technical and grant advice for people. There will be a smoothie bike attraction, where you pedal a stationary bike that powers a food blender to make a smoothie. We will also have a face painter and energy awareness activities for children.

“It should be an exciting event,. Especially now there is a growing interest in reducing energy use with the prices of energy going up all the time.”

8,000 leaflets will also be dropped around to home highlighting the Energy awareness Day, which will be taking place from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, June 18 at the De La Salle Pastoral Centre.
