Women in Solar

GRID Alternatives’ mission supports multiple levels of workforce development and service-learning opportunities, from volunteerism to in-depth solar training and paid internships.
For Women’s History Month, GRID Mid-Atlantic has been celebrating the efforts and excellence of women in solar. Ramonita Ramey, a GRID client who lives in Northeast D.C., worked in solar a little earlier than the rest of us. To be precise, she got a job making solar cells in a Maryland factory 43 years ago, long before rooftop solar power became popular.
We're highlighting a fantastic and integral member of the GRID Mid-Atlantic staff, Nikki Mammano. Nikki began working with GRID as a SolarCorps fellow for the Outreach team, and was eventually hired on full-time as an Outreach Coordinator. Known for her compassionate approach to working with clients, outside of work Nikki is also an amazing salsa dancer and houseplant enthusiast. In 2019, Nikki was in a life-changing car accident and continues to work through her recovery process.
