GRID works closely with our corporate partners to help companies give back in the communities where their employees live and work. By joining our partnership network, you can demonstrate your commitment to the environment and you community while giving your employees the opportunity to participate in a local solar installation - a fun and educational team-building project with tangible, long-term benefits for a family in need. We have various levels of partnership available, and we are committed to working with your company or private group to put together a partnership package that works for you.
