The new Yakima Veteran’s Housing project is being granted up to 150 – thousand dollars to install solar power in the new facility.
Yakima Housing Authority is redeveloping a former Marine Corps Armory into a housing for homeless veterans and will be able to have solar power thanks to Pacific Power.
Regional Business Manager for Pacific Power Lori Froehlich says this grant comes from their Blue-Sky Fund which is provided by customers who pay extra on their bill to fund renewable energy.
“It’s actually customers in the Yakima area who are funding this project with their goal for a more sustainable future and investing in a blue sky," said Froehlich.
