Solarize Campaign

Coming to Deschutes County: Fall 2024!

A time-limited campaign to reduce the logistical and financial barriers to going solar.

Energize Bend and The Environmental Center are in the planning phase to launch a county-wide solarize campaign later this year!  Energize Bend is a coalition of community groups supporting the adoption of clean energy and electrification through policy advocacy and community education.

Solarize is a community-based outreach initiative that reduces the cost and complexity of going solar by providing a one-stop shop for education and installation. This is a well-documented and tested model for increasing solar participation.
