Beginning in 2017, thanks to a generous grant from the JPB foundation, affordable housing developers can receive free technical assistance from GRID Alternatives to determine whether or not their properties are suitable for solar. We also offer a mission-based, one-stop shop process for implementing solar power on qualified multifamily properties.

GRID Alternatives Tri-State officially opened its doors in 2014 to make solar power and solar jobs accessible to underserved communities in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. We kicked off the program in fall 2013 with installations across the region in partnership with several local job training and in partnership with community-based organizations.
GRID Alternatives Tri-State offers technical assistance and turnkey installation services to multifamily affordable housing developers. Learn more.
Hands-on experience is central to our model, and we want to help turn that experience into meaningful employment opportunities for people in communities we serve. Our workforce development programs and initiatives include:
- Installation Training Programs, training programs offering volunteers hands-on installation training to develop their skills and increase employment opportunities.
- National Women in Solar Initiative, a national initiative to build a more inclusive solar workforce and connect an industry that needs good people with communities that need good jobs.
- SolarCorps Fellowships, one-year placements at GRID Alternatives that give participants the opportunity to get broad and deep experience in a variety of aspects of the industry.
- Solar Futures, a K-14 education program offering classroom curriculum and hands-on training for youth.
