80 Panels. 5 Homes. 1 Incredible Day! Join us for Solarthon 2015 in Richmond, CA

GRID Alternatives’ Bay Area team is excited to announce that this year’s Bay Area Solarthon will take place in Richmond, CA on September 26th!

Solarthon is GRID’s flagship community installation event, bringing together homeowners, volunteers, corporate sponsors and job-trainees to install solar for multiple low-income families in one day. This year, GRID is proud to host our second Solarthon in Richmond CA, a diverse and historically-rich community in the East Bay that while once was a center of industry, is now best known for high rates of crime, poverty, and pollution.  

But despite the city's challenges, there’s much good news coming out of Richmond, not the least of which is the city’s continuing commitment to renewable energy for all, and GRID is thrilled to be a part of it!

This year at Solarthon, we plan to install complete solar systems for 5 low-income families in Richmond, and everyone is invited to participate!  Here's how you can get involved:
