Solarthon is our largest community installation event of the year!


Solarthon is a fundraiser and solar installation block party, where volunteers come together to install solar for a community that needs it most. This fun day in the sun brings together hundreds of GRID supporters, job trainees and clients to install solar electric systems for multiple low-income families in a single neighborhood.

This year, GRID Alternatives Norh Valley will solarize houses in the North City Farms Neighborhood.  Expected impacts for the day are to serve 7 families, providing 24kW of clean, renewable energy - offset of 460 tons of greenhouse gas emissions.  Join the community blitz build by sponsoring an installation, attending our communitiy resource fair, donating to our UC Davis Solar Champions or attend a tour to see our work in action.

2017 Solarthon Celebrates 1MW of GRID installations in the North Valley!

Thank you to this year's sponsors:  Wells Fargo, SunPower, CSD, Enphase, Jinko Solar, Ironridge, Schneider Electric, The Honnold Foundation, Sunrun, NRG and UC Davis MBA Net Impact
