Imagine wanting a solar energy system for your home but finding the expense out of your reach. Lupe Flores found herself in such a predicament. Lupe is in her sixties, on a tight budget, living with a disability, providing for her grandson, and paying a mortgage.

Family Connections

Twin brothers Mario and Jesus “Jesse” Venegas heard about GRID Alternatives Installation Basics Training (IBT 200) program in the Central Valley from their cousin.

Taking Steps Toward a Better Future

Juan struggled to acquire a full-time job. He would often find himself jumping from one part-time job to another and stated, “I could never get paid more than minimum wage in any job I had before, but since graduating from GRID Alternatives IBT-200 solar training in 2021, he has had four or five interviews with solar companies, and they all offered better pay.”
