GRID Alternatives Central Coast wants to thank all of
In early March, students from Arizona State University traveled to the central coast to participate in our second annual Solar Spring Break. Solar Spring Break is an alternative spring break program where students spend their vacation week engaged in community service and project based learning.
GRID Alternatives Central Coast is doing some amazing work helping local community members gain access to solar energy! We bring together community partners, volunteers and job trainees to implement solar power and energy efficiency for low-income families, providing energy cost savings, valuable hands-on experience and a source of clean, local energy that benefits us all. Our latest program, Youth in Solar, aims to engage disadvantaged youth ages 16-21 in our solar installation training program to provide solar education and hands-on experience with the goal being to set them on a path towards a promising future.
"Solar Spring Break with GRID Alternatives in the Central Coast has been the best week of my life so far!" That's from Abhishek Rao, a graduate student at Arizona State University, who volunteered with us through Solar Spring Break.
Our Central Coast office is excited to have 11 graduate students from Arizona State University joining us for Solar Spring Break this week!
