Solar Spring Break
When you think of college spring break, you may think of adventurous road trips with friends, parties by the beach, or just catching up on sleep from the previous week of late nights studying for midterms. Instead, a group of 13 students participating in the Alternative Spring Break program from California State University, Fresno partnered with GRID Alternatives to lend a helping hand installing solar panels for two individuals in Fresno’s downtown Lowell District. The Alternative Spring Break program gives opportunity for students to give back and empower local neighborhoods. Fresno State ASB students discussed their motivation to participate on the installs.
12 college students from University of Massachusetts Boston traded in their typical spring break in March for a week of solar installation training and photovoltaic systems teach-in with GRID Tri-State.
In early March, students from Arizona State University traveled to the central coast to participate in our second annual Solar Spring Break. Solar Spring Break is an alternative spring break program where students spend their vacation week engaged in community service and project based learning.
