GRID Alternatives continues to make a huge impact on the communities we serve, despite this challenging Covid-19 pandemic year. Here’s an overview of GRID Alternative Inland Empire’s (GRID IE) accomplishments in 2020:
Thanks in large part to Sunrun, GRID Alternatives Bay Area recently installed an 8.06 kW solar system at the Rio Vista Veterans Residence. The home will provide a permanent residence with case management and support services for six formerly homeless veterans. The six bedroom house is being built by Solano-Napa Habitat for Humanity and will be owned and operated by the Berkeley Food & Housing Project with the assistance of American Legion Post 178.

This year, Interconnection went online for the first time ever. Instead of gathering in San Francisco, we were able to broadcast our speakers and honorees directly to people’s living rooms. Although we missed seeing everyone in person, it was a wonderful opportunity to connect remotely with our GRID family across the globe - nearly 200 households tuned in to watch the live event!
