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.


Become a Solarthon sponsor

Sponsoring Solarthon directly helps GRID Alternatives continue to bring clean, affordable energy and hands-on solar installation experience to families and workers that need it most. Participants get hands-on experience installing solar for local families, network with other solar enthusiasts and solar installion companies, and have fun while making a difference in their community. For corporate sponsors, the event is an opportunity to demonstrate their commitment to environmental and community sustainability.
