GRID Alternatives is a non-profit organization that brings the benefits of solar technology to low-income communities. Using a barn-raising model, GRID Alternatives leads teams of volunteers and job trainees to install solar power on qualifying homes, providing needed savings for families struggling to make ends meet while preparing workers for jobs in the fast-growing solar industry.

Since 2009, GRID Alternatives has installed more than 550 photovoltaic solar energy systems in the Central Valley alone, helping low-income families save over $18M in energy bills over the 30 year lifespan of the solar energy systems.
