Solarthon is a solar installation block party and fundraiser, where volunteers come together to install solar for a community that needs it most. Solarthon brings together people from all walks of life - individual fundraisers, corporate sponsors, job trainees, community leaders and the homeowners themselves - to install solar electric systems for multiple low-income families in a single neighborhood.
Over 100 volunteers, corporate partners, community leaders, and job trainees make Solarthon possible - join us!THANK YOU to everyone who made our 13th Annual Solarthon event a huge success!
On Saturday June 9th, more than 100 community volunteers, executives from the solar industry, solar clients & residents of Atchison Village, and local job trainees all came together to successfully install for 19 families in one day and take part in a celebration of Richmond's bright future! Together, we made a huge impact:
- 19 households were installed, totaling 27.8 kw of solar
- The systems will generate $260,500+ worth of clean energy estimated over the systems' lifetimes - huge savings for the families!
- Over 530 tons of carbon emissions prevented - the equivalent of planting nearly 12,500 trees
- Raised $85,000 to support GRID's work and mission
