2014: Celebrating GRID Bay Area's Year in Review


January 07, 2015

As we hit the roof running with our first solar installations of 2015, we want to pause and take a moment to celebrate our successes in 2014. Thanks to your support, we had an incredible year! Here are a few things to be excited about from 2014:

GRID Bay Area volunteers put in 13,000 hours of service. That’s some serious time, all directly benefitting low-income communities! 

More than 35 of our local volunteers were recruited for jobs in the growing solar industry thanks to their experience with GRID.

You helped us install 144 solar systems for low-income families in 2014! Over their lifespan, these systems will eliminate 10,500 tons of green house gas emissions

That’s the carbon offset equivalent of planting more than twice the number of public trees in San Francisco, more than 240,000 trees!

Thanks to our work in 2014 alone, local families are on their way to collectively save more than $3,000,000 over these systems' lifetimes!

Wow! We hope you’re as powered up about these results as we are. And if you’re really feeling the energy, consider supporting GRID with a gift of any size today. Your dollars help us secure the equipment and expertise we need to get this work done. 

We are already out installing solar to help make 2015 our brightest year yet, but we can't do it without your continued support! Keep coming out on the roof, telling your friends, referring potential clients and donating generously! Together we can keep delivering clean, renewable solar power to those that need it the most.

Thanks again for all that you did to make 2014 such a success!

We also want to share a special shout-out to the many Bay Area supporters who funding our work in 2014, including SunEdison, SunPower, Enphase Energy, NRG, a donor-advised fund of the San Francisco Foundation, PG&E, Sunrun, Clean Power Finance, Winograd-Hutner Family Fund, Chevron, Genentech, Clif Bar Family Foundation, Google, Sungevity, USBank, and more!
