GRID Alternatives continues to expand our non-profit solar electric installation services to low income homeowers accross the state. Currently we are serving families in the San Francisco Bay Area, the Greater Los Angeles Area, the Central Valley, San Diego, the Inland Empire and are moving into the Central Coast. To date we have installed 420 solar electric systems, with 100 of those completed in 2010 alone.

To celebrate our growth while installing more solar electric systems throughout the state, GRID Alternatives is hosting several large solar block party installations throughout California. These regional events, called Solarthons, will be held June 12 in Los Angeles, July 31st in the Bay Area, October 2nd in the Central Valley and tentatively October 30th in San Diego. Each event will install 6-10 solar elelctric systems in a single day with community members and local homeowners. Check out for more details about GRID Alternatives regional Solarthon events.
