GRID Alternatives Continues to Grow!

GRID Alternatives is has continued to grow over the past several months! Our recently opened San Diego office is now fully up and running, and in May we opened a Fresno Regional Office to add to our statewide network. As Project Manager for the California Solar Initiative Single Family Affordable Solar Homes (SASH) Program, we continue to bring solar power to low income families throughout the State, having completed 228 installations statewide to date.

The GRID Alternatives Oakland office will be hosting Solarthon 2009 on September 12th, 2009. This year we will be installing solar electric systems on 16 houses in one day! For more information or to find out how to participate, please follow the link below.

As always, thank you to the supporters of GlobalGiving for helping GRID Alternatives deliver more renewable energy to low income families throughout the state of California!
