From the Auburn Reporter:
Puget Sound Energy has awarded the King County Housing Authority with a grant to install solar panels at the Meadows on Lea Hill Apartments in Auburn.
The Village at Overlake Station in Redmond, and Windsor Heights Apartments at SeaTac also will receive solar panels.
Collectively, the three systems total 82 kilowatts, enough clean energy to lower the KCHA’s operating costs.
“These rooftop installations help advance the Housing Authority’s Environmental Sustainability Plan,” said KCHA Executive Director Stephen Norman. “The impact of these investments is significant – they not only reduce our housing’s impact on the environment but also lower utility costs and keep these apartments affordable to families that are increasingly struggling with escalating rent and utility costs in these markets. They are part of an ambitious five-year plan to reduce KCHA’s carbon footprint. We truly value the partnership with Puget Sound Energy and Washington State University in moving this effort forward.”
