REDMOND, OR -- The City of Redmond just approved a new partnership aimed at saving $100,000 per year in energy costs.  The $1.2 million contract with Ameresco will bring upgrades to 11 city buildings.  

 

Over the next several months, crews will install lighting and control upgrades, as well as a solar power system at the Redmond Airport.  City officials expect the projects to be completed by spring.  At that point, they hope to take advantage of nearly $160,000 in rebates and incentives fom the Energy Trust of Oregon.

 

It's estimated the project will keep more than a million pounds of CO2 out of the environment - the equivalent of removing 189 cars from the road, each year.
