Roll up your sleeves with GRID!

Solarthon is GRID Alternatives' flagship community installation event, a fundraiser and solar block party that brings people together - individual fundraisers, corporate sponsors, job trainees, community leaders and the homeowners themselves - to install multiple solar PV systems in one community.

Join us for Solarthon!

Solarthon is a true community effort with big impacts: clean, affordable energy for low-income families, hands-on job training opportunities for local residents, and a fun, barnraising-style event that unites the entire community for a common cause. GRID hosts Solarthon events all over the country throughout the year. Click on an upcoming event below to learn more about how you can get involved.
