Solarthon Season!

On Saturday, September 10, 2011, GRID Alternatives will kick off it's Solarthon Season in Oakland, CA!  Solarthon is an annual solar installation block party and fundraiser for GRID Alternatives.  Solarthon brings together hundreds of individual, team, and corporate participants from their communities to install multiple solar energy systems alongside the homeowners.

In 2010 GRID Alternatives took the event statewide and held three regional Solarthon events out of our Greater Los Angeles, Bay Area and Central Valley offices.  A total of 24 solar electric systems were completed during these events in conjunction with the Single-family Affordable Solar Homes (SASH) Program, under the auspices of the California Public Utilities Commission.

In 2011, GRID Alternatives will host five Solarthon events throughout California:

Bay Area- Saturday, September 10, 2011

Central Coast - Saturday, October 22, 2011

Central Valley - Saturday, October 8, 2011

Greater Los Angeles- Saturday, November 5, 2011

San Diego- Saturday, September 24, 2011

We look forward to all of our Solarthon events and would like to thank all of our supporters.  With the help of our global community, we are able to provide solar energy systems to more families and shine the light on a better, more sustainable future for all!
