The Environmental Center in Bend is hosting a series of informational workshops throughout the region in the next six weeks to offer homeowners more information about using solar energy.

The center has teamed up with two area solar energy companies to form a program called Go Solar! Central Oregon. The concept is to expand the use of solar power in Deschutes, Crook and Jefferson counties.

Upcoming meetings will be Sept. 5 and 15 at The Environmental Center in Bend and Sept. 10 and 28 at the Redmond Senior Center.
