The Living Access Support Alliance (LASA) is community-supported organization that assists homeless individuals and families, providing emergency shelter, rapid re-housing, and some permanent supportive housing. Started in 1989 by Rev. Luther Kriefall, LASA emphasizes homelessness prevention. LASA owns 15 units of housing at Flett Meadows, which is available for low-income families experiencing homelessness.

The Olympia Community Solar team provided development support and helped secure funding for the project from the WSU Low-income Solar Fund. The installation will produce roughly 67,000 kWhs of energy each year, saving over $8,400 each year and reducing energy burden by over 90%. Over the next 30 years, this will generate roughly $520,000 in savings for LASA. The installation will reduce the rent of tenants in Flett Meadows, while reducing LASA’s operating costs so they can focus more time and resources on their services.

This installation will contribute to sustainable infrastructure in Pierce County, and each year will prevent pollution equivalent to 58,573 lb CO2 emissions prevents, 704 trees planted, or over 106,000 miles not driven.
