For the first time in weeks, the sun broke through for our Eco Travel Network launch at Henderson Hall in Talybont on Usk yesterday afternoon. All 6 of our current ETN Twizy fleet were there along with 4 ETN member businesses: Brecon Beacons Holiday Cottages, The Angel Hotel,  Old Radnor Barn and Westview Guesthouse.

Over 40 people attended the launch including local tourism businesses and associations, the Brecon Beacons National Park - Sustainable Development and Sustainable Tourism, Renault UK and Zero Carbon World.

Everyone enjoyed driving a Twizy - up over the canal bridge, up towards the hills and back down into the village. In between trips, the hungry Twizys were fed by electricity generated by the Solar PV panels on the Henderson Hall roof. Good Energy probably didn't receive as much electricity from Henderson Hall as usual yesterday as it was all used up keeping the Twizy fleet on the road!

Both BBC Wales and ITV Wales featured the launch as did the National Park.

We look forward now to welcoming the first visitors to the area to enjoy exploring the area in this novel and fun form of eco transport.
