8 Schools In Wicklow Shortlisted For Energy Retrofit Programme

The funding is part of a €240m package from the EU secured by the Irish government under REPowerEU

The schools that will benefit include Avoca National School, St Mary's and St Gerard's in Enniskerry, Scoil Nioclais in Dunlavin, Kimocommon in Tinahely, Carnew in Arklow, Bray School Project, St John's Senior School in Arklow and Scoil Chonglais. 

Shortlisted schools will benefit from a deep retrofit to achieve better Building Energy Building Ratings with new heat pumps, LED lighting and new ventilation systems. 

 Speaking today, Taoiseach Simon Harris said:

“I am delighted to announce 8 schools in my home county have been selected for retrofits. 

"Each school will benefit massively from having new and more energy efficient systems. 

"Every school should strive to reduce their energy consumption and become more environmentally friendly for generations to come. 

"This funding will achieve that goal and ensure pupils for years to come are in comfortable and energy efficient schools. 

Taoiseach Simon Harris added:

“This dedicated funding is such a positive step towards securing the future of our children in county Wicklow and across the country. 

"Children of this generation who are so conscious of the responsibility we all have in reducing our energy consumption will no doubt notice the difference these retrofits will make as will the teachers and staff working in the school.

“As a TD in Wicklow and as a passionate advocate for climate action I am thrilled to see this funding help schools improve their facilities.
