Exciting Growth with GRID Alternatives

GRID Alternatives continues to expand our solar affordable housing program and staff. Since the start of 2008, we have completed 9 installations for homeowners with low incomes, and are adding 4 new staff members to our team.

In addition to our installation and program growth, we have also had several opportunities to create new partnerships with job training programs. These partnerships offer hard-working youth exposure to employment options in the emerging green economy and hands-on skill development in solar installation.
