Solar Futures Program

GRID Alternatives created the Solar Futures program to provide both classroom and hands-on solar education to K-14 students, with a focus on high school juniors and seniors, to provide opportunities to learn more about solar power and illuminate career pathways in the booming solar industry.

The Solar Futures program leverages GRID Alternatives’ hands-on solar installation model in order to educate and inspire the next generation of solar leaders. The program’s initial emphasis will be on supporting programming for high school students in California’s Inland Empire and San Joaquin Valley, combining classroom-based sessions with real-world experience installing solar for GRID Alternatives’ income-qualified clients.

The Solar Futures program is supported by SunPower.
