The Solar industry had the second largest quarter in US History based on a recent report from the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) — installing over 2.3 gigawatts of solar PV — and is expected to grow to 12 gigawatts of solar capacity by the end of 2017. GRID Alternatives contributed to this growth as the largest nonprofit solar organization in the industry, with nearly 1,200 systems installed in 2017. GRID is also an innovative industry leader through the development of our Multifamily Affordable Solar Program. Our teams assist developers and governmental agencies in providing renewable energy solutions to individuals who live in multifamily structures such as apartment complexes.
GRID IE is approaching an important milestone in October as a 90 kW microgrid system will be installed at the Chemehuevi Indian Tribe’s Community Center in Havasu Lake, California. The microgrid represents another successful project that has already seen the GRID-Chemehuevi partnership blossom with over 80 residential solar systems installed on tribal homes. The partnership has also produced a Solar Spring Break with Duke University and provided photovoltaic (PV) training for over 20 tribal members.
Forty-five women from around the country joined together earlier this month to help build the Coyote Ridge Solar Array at GRID Colorado’s annual We Build Retreat, a weekend of service learning and networking for women in solar and related careers.
