The irrigation district is proposing to build floating photovoltaic solar panels on the main canal of the Deschutes project located near Bend. The project will allow the novel technology of floating solar panels on a canal to be evaluated, designed, and built to study the water efficiency gains and amount of clean energy produced for future larger scale implementation and as a pilot for the federal Bureau of Reclamation.
