About

The GRID Alternatives Bay Area office was formed in 2009 and currently shares an office with GRID Headquarters. Since 2004, the Bay Area and Headquarters office have helped hundreds of homeowners save thousands of dollars in electricity bills through solar installations and energy efficiency while preventing greenhouse gases and providing hands-on experience to eager volunteers and job-trainees. In the Bay Area we have installed over 1000 solar PV systems for low-income families. Click here to see a map of our projects and the counties we serve. In 2014, we are on track to install another 150 systems.
