GRID Alternatives is a non-profit that trains and leads teams of community volunteers and job trainees to install solar electric systems in partnership with low-income families throughout California.
GRID Alternatives’ mission is to empower communities in need by providing renewable energy and energy efficiency services, equipment and training. Since 2001, GRID Alternatives has been working to bring the power of solar electricity and energy efficiency to low-income homeowners, and to provide community members with training and hands-on experience with renewable energy technologies. We believe making energy choices that are good for the environment can go hand-in-hand with improving the lives of those living in low-income communities.
GRID Alternatives works collaboratively with communities and local organizations to identify specific needs and to develop renewable energy solutions that are environmentally, socially and economically sustainable. Our vision of sustainable development centers on community involvement, and our focus and expertise lies in using renewable energy and energy efficiency to provide solutions to the challenges facing low-income individuals and families. We have offices in the San Francisco Bay Area, Greater Los Angeles, and San Diego to serve communities throughout California.
GRID Alternatives is the Program Manager for the Single-family Affordable Solar Homes (SASH) Program.
