WHAT WE ARE DOING

The Strategic Energy Management Plan will describe how we plan to meet the goals established in Resolution 3044.

Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Projects
- In 2011, the city installed a 33 kilowatt solar array on top of the Bend Centennial Parking Plaza downtown. Visit the Bend Centennial Parking Solar Array Monitoring Dashboard to see how it's performing.
- The City is installing 360 solar panels at the Water Filtration Facility. The solar installation will help the City reduce its carbon emissions by nearly 180,000 pounds per year over 20 years. Read the WFF Solar Installation Project FAQ to learn more.
- Starting July 2019, the City is converting over 2,000 existing public street lights to 3,000 Kelvin energy efficient, light-emitting diode (LED) fixtures to reduce the City’s energy costs, maintenance costs and carbon emissions. Read the LED Street Light Conversion Fact Sheet for more information.
- Have questions? Read the LED Street Light Conversion FAQ.
- Email LEDstreetlights@bendoregon.gov if a replaced LED street light is not working or there is another issue with the LED conversion project.
- You can also track our progress on the street light conversions with this interactive project map.
