City of South Bend earned a rebate check of more than $30,000 through energy efficiency achieved in three downtown parking garages. In the Main and Colfax Streets Garage, the Leighton Garage, and the Wayne Street Garage, the city’s Energy Office has installed new lighting fixtures, replacing numerous lights with new light-emitting diode (LED) bulbs.

“The City will get a full return on its $250,000 investment in about two and a half years.”
– Jon Burke, South Bend’s Municipal Energy Director
