To kick off the new year, Puget Sound Energy is awarding three organizations the gift of green energy. King County Housing Authority, HopeSource in Cle Elum and Opportunity Council in Bellingham have been granted nearly $465,000 to install solar panels to five low-income multi-family housing facilities they own and operate. These organizations were chosen for their work with families in need. The Washington State University Energy Program, through its Community Energy Efficiency Program, helped provide half of the funding for this project.
“We are continuing our commitment to the communities we serve by choosing to work with Community Action Agencies that have a track record of serving people in need,” said Will Einstein, director of product development and growth. “By funding these solar projects on multi-family housing, not only are we supporting their core mission, but also helping to reduce their energy costs — returning savings to their tenants, and reducing their carbon footprint.”
As part of PSE’s commitment to reduce its carbon footprint 50 percent by 2040 and help our customers do their part, these solar projects are another step we’re taking with the community to preserve and protect the environment for future generations
