Solar Spring Break

Not many can say that they volunteered their spring break week installing solar panels in the lovely city of Denver, CO. But that’s exactly what University of Central Arkansas’s Environmental Alliance Group did.
On March 24th and 25th Stanford University Students joined GRID’s solar installation supervisors for two days of Solar Fun!!!
From March 2nd to the 7th, seven amazing students from the University of Vermont brought with them such a strong wave of enthusiasm, curiosity, and optimism that will not soon be forgotten at the Central Coast office.
On January 7th, 2014, students from University of Nebraska-Lincoln escaped the sub-zero temperatures of the recent Polar Vortex to enjoy two days of mild Goshen, California temperatures installing solar with GRID. The 26 students were part of the UNL Alternative Service Break Program, which aims to expose students to issues within different communities and immersing them in hands on experience to facilitate solutions. The group marveled at the diversity they saw in California, but were a diverse group themselves; from undergraduates to recent grads, from international students to a Central Valley native that came home to serve.
“We wanted to give college students who are passionate about renewable energy the chance to turn that passion into action doing projects that have a tangible impact on families’ lives”
GRID Alternatives Inland Empire gets engineering students up on the roof this spring for its inaugural “Alternative Break.”
On March 26th 2013, GRID Alternatives Inland Empire (GRID IE) will be in the City of Redlands and Loma Linda to solarize the homes of Alejandra Pennington and Dewi Maria Sagala, with the help of the Southern California Engineering Technology Association of California State Polytechnic University in Pomona, for GRID IE’s Inaugural Alternative Spring Break Project.
