Who We Are

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

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.

GRID Alternatives is a 501(c)(3) certified non-profit organization that brings together community partners, volunteers and job trainees to implement solar power and energy efficiency for low-income families, providing energy cost savings, valuable hands-on experience, and a source of clean, local energy that benefits us all.
