International Impact Stories

GRID led a team of SolarCity volunteers to El Islote, Nicaragua to install solar power on a primary school through SolarCity's GivePower Foundation.
This past February, GRID Alternatives took a group of volunteers from Sunrun on a powerful journey into the rural village of Portrero Sur, Nicaragua.
International work has always been part of GRID Alternatives' long-term vision of bringing solar to underserved communities.
This fall, GRID Alternatives partnered for the first time with solar non-profit Power to the People to bring off-grid solar power to Los Calpules, Nicaragua. Tim Sears, GRID Alternatives co-founder and COO/CFO participated in the project and tells his story.
