Bethlehem Inn

Bethlehem Inn provides transitional shelter and support services for adults and children experiencing homelessness in Central Oregon. While planning to expand to a larger facility in Bend, Oregon, Bethlehem Inn partnered with Energy Trust of Oregon to design a solar-ready facility capable of net-zero energy usage by 2030. In partnership with Blue Sky customers, Bethlehem Inn will install a solar power system, using Oregon-made solar panels. Cost savings from the project will support Bethlehem Inn’s job training and other financial support services. Onsite monitoring equipment will teach clients and volunteers about renewable energy and its benefits in the community.
