About

The GRID Alternatives North Valley office was established in Chico, California in 2011. Our office serves a diverse 20-county region, spanning from Sacramento County north to the Oregon border.  

Our work makes a big impact for families, saving them tens of thousands of dollars in energy costs over their system's lifetime.  Savings that can then be used on other critical family needs, and spent in the local community.

But we do more than just deliver solar energy to qualified homeowners. Our projects help job seekers be competitive in the emerging renewables industry.  We provide a number of hands-on, job training opportunities each month, at no-cost to the participants. Our program also provides valuable service opportunities for corporate work teams and community volunteers.

GRID Alternatives has installed more than 10MW of locally generated, clean and renewable energy, benefitting families, for the environment and the community. To learn more about how you can engage with our work, contact the North Valley office at infonv@gridalternatives.org.
