GRID Alternatives is GROWING!

GRID Alternatives is growing rapidly!

To date we have installed 340 solar electric systems, trained 3,800 community volunteers, and helped reduce the electric bills of California's low-income families by up to 75%. Our recent regional office addition in the Central Valley is up to speed and a fully operational office. This is the fourth regional office in addition our Headquarters office and our offices in the San Francisco Bay Area, Greater Los Angeles, and San Diego.

In 2004, GRID Alternatives launched it's Solar Affordable Housing Program and installed two solar electric systems. In 2010 we are on track to install 300 solar electric systems in a single year. We are thrilled about our growth and ability to increase access to the economic and environmental benefits of solar energy for California's low income families.
