GET ON A ROOF!

JUNE 10TH, 2017 • 10 HOMES

Menlo Park, CA

Solarthon is our largest community installation event of the year!

Solarthon is a solar installation block party and fundraiser, where volunteers come together to install solar for a community that needs it most. Solarthon brings together people from all walks of life - individual fundraisers, corporate sponsors, job trainees, community leaders and the homeowners themselves - to install solar electric systems for multiple low-income families in a single neighborhood.

Fun for Everyone

Participants get hands-on experience installing solar for local families, network with other solar enthusiasts and solar installation companies, and have fun while making a difference in their community. For corporate sponsors, the event is an opportunity to demonstrate their commitment to environmental and community sustainability. 

The Benefits of Sponsorship

Sponsor a house for your employee volunteers or for a team of job trainees from one of our local partners. Sponsorship benefits can include prominent signage, logos on event marketing materials, speaking opportunities, media outreach and more - plus the benefits of participating in a fun and meaningful community event!

Join us as a Solar Champion 

Individual fundraisers - or Solar Champions - commit to raising $500 for our work in the Bay Area, which secures them a spot on a roof at Solarthon. Solar Champion spots are limited, so sign up today!

For more information about sponsorships or Solar Champions, please contact Ashley Malyszka at amalyszka@gridalternatives.org or (510) 731-1193.
