Who We Are

  • For the Next Generation
  • Real world experience
  • Generating happy homeowners

At GRID Alternatives, we believe that a successful transition to clean, renewable energy needs to include everyone. We are working across the United States and internationally to make renewable energy technology and job training accessible to underserved communities.

Renewable energy can drive economic growth and environmental benefits in communities most impacted by underemployment, pollution and climate change. GRID Alternatives is a national leader in making clean, affordable solar power and solar jobs accessible to low-income communities and communities of color, and our energy access work is powering off-grid communities across the globe. GRID’s vision: a successful transition to clean, renewable energy that includes everyone.

GRID Alternatives is 501(c)(3) certified non-profit organization based in Oakland, California, with eight affiliate offices serving all of California, Colorado, Washington D.C., Virginia, Maryland and Delaware. We also have a national Tribal Program, and an International Program serving Nicaragua, Nepal and Mexico.
