“I’m very excited that DHS is the top solar city in the Coachella Valley,” said Desert Hot Springs Mayor Adam Sanchez, Sr. “GRID Alternatives has been a strong partner with the City as part of our Health and Wellness Initiative. It’s a win-win-win for us because families save on their energy costs, our students and job trainees gain skills that can help them land local jobs, and clean energy is produced right on people’s rooftops.” “I see hope and opportunity through solar for our residents and I especially encourage anyone interested in the solar industry to sign up and volunteer with GRID to get the experience needed to get those jobs,” said Sanchez.
GRID Alternatives Colorado is very excited to announce that work has officially begun on our first ever Community Solar project.
