t's been one year since the Bend City Council adopted its Climate Action Resolution, aimed at improving energy efficiency in the city. Some of the biggest sources of energy usage: electricity and natural gas.

An update issued Sept. 19 reported that over the "past few years," the City of Bend achieved a savings of about $30,000 by reducing its electricity usage.

"We have achieved these results by fine-tuning our building systems and educating staff in energy efficiency practices, efforts that come at a very minimal cost," Facilities Manager Grant Burke said in the release. The Bend City Council planned to update the public on the city's progress—and outline its short- and long-term plans regarding energy efficiency and fossil fuel reduction—during its Sept. 20 meeting.
