Tribal Program

GRID Alternatives was awarded a $1.7 million grant from the California Energy Commission (CEC) for a microgrid community solar project and battery backup system on the Soboba Band of Cahuilla and Luiseño Indian Tribe Reservation in San Jacinto, Calif.
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:
We are proud of our tribal partnerships and programs, which are led by tribal staff who are passionate about supporting tribal communities in the transition to a clean energy future.
GRID recently installed a rooftop solar project benefitting 13 homes in Sicangu Village, one of the many communities within Rosebud Sioux Nation. All Points North Foundation provided critical financial support to ensure that no costs were passed to Tribal members.
Twelve tribes have been selected for grants for new clean energy projects from Tribal Solar Accelerator Fund!
California’s first low-income community solar project, a nearly 1-megawatt solar electric system on the Santa Rosa Band of Cahuilla Indians reservation, broke ground in June of this year and is well into Phase One.
