Making it happen in Colorado

September 29, 2012

GRID Alternatives kicked off its Colorado operations and national expansion this fall with its first ever out-of-state project, in Lakewood, Colorado, marking the start of a 5-year, $2 million grant from Wells Fargo to help bring GRID Alternatives' program to communities accross the United States.

From September 24-29, we installed solar electric systems for 12 deserving families living in homes built by Habitat for Humanity of Metro Denver in the City of Lakewood. These systems will save families $360,000 over their 30-year lifetimes, and take the CO2 equivalent of 231 cars off the road for a year! And as usual, we had the help of community volunteers, job trainees and employee volunteers from our corporate and other partners. Check out our other news from September to read all about our Colorado adventures!

This project was just a preview of what's to come, with GRID Alternatives Colorado slated to open its doors in Denver in 2013!
