A grant to boost female solar workforce

GRID GLA is receiving an investment from JPMorgan Chase to support our Behind the Walls solar workforce training program, which will prepare women who were formerly incarcerated in LA County Lynwood Women’s Jail for career opportunities in solar and renewable energy.

Greater LA

GRID Alternatives Greater Los Angeles leads teams of volunteers and job trainees to install solar electric systems for low-income families in Los Angeles, Orange and Ventura Counties, providing families with needed savings and giving area workers hands-on experience to help them find employment in the green-tech economy. Since we opened in 2007, we’ve helped over 1,900 low-income families go solar throughout the Greater Los Angeles region.
