Pacoima is a community on the frontlines of environmental justice. Juan and Ana Macias recently went solar with GRID Greater Los Angeles and can expect to save $16,000 and prevent 27 tons of carbon emissions over the life of their solar system. They plan to use that savings to make additional home improvements and raise their kids in a thriving community. We’re proud to work with long-standing partners in the Pacoima community.
