Annual Report 14: Employment

Leticia Reis, one of our summer interns, came to us by way of Cal Poly San Luis Obispo’s BioResource and Agricultural Engineering (BRAE) Department. She heard about GRID Alternatives this fall during a partnership with the BRAE Department in which GRID employees participated in a Solar Photovoltaic System Engineering lab course and spoke at several sessions of the class.
We would like to thank and say farewell to three AmeriCorps State members and PG&E solar fellows who have completed 1700 hours of service to our office – Lauren Walburg, Anton Muller and Dan St. Sauveur.
This year, our Central Coast regional office is continuing its work as a non-profit solar contractor with the help of three new employees and four new interns.
On Saturday, June 28th, GRID Alternatives Central Valley kicked off its participation in GRID's National Women in Solar Initiative with an all-women’s crew providing installation expertise. On this crew were six extraordinary women from the surrounding area that helped install solar on a Habitat for Humanity home located in Clovis, California.
We’re back in Denver after a spectacular week bringing our program state wide with our Solar Road Show, which included installations in Durango, Grand Junction and the Roaring Fork Valley.
GRID Alternatives, in partnership with PG&E Pacific Energy Center, hosted our second annual Solar Jobs Fair in conjunction with the Intersolar conference in San Francisco.
