Greater Los Angeles
Donors, neighborhood folks, and partners shared an inspiring afternoon with staff from the Instituto de Educacion Popular del Sur de California.
Meanwhile, those same workers are putting sweat equity into the Job Center project by becoming first-time installers of solar!
For those hit hardest by economic and environmental injustice, the solar industry can offer long-term careers with opportunities for advancement.
This week, leaders from the NAACP Compton branch joined GRID Alternatives Greater Los Angeles and Sunrun for a Solar Equity Initiative installation!
It's a proud week for us, because we just wrapped up our last week of major construction on the gorgeous Kenwood Homes in Glendale!
We believe that men and women who have paid their debt to society are ready to contribute to the public good, and that solar employment holds the key.
Once they arrived at their installs in Long Beach, both teams saw the lessons they learned on previous days brought to life!
"When we came back down from the mountain, people said, 'Thank you so much—you saved our homes.' I realized I liked helping people."
Last weekend, the Del Grosso family had a chance to see some of that helpful spirit in person!
This is the latest in a series of profiles introducing the GRID Alternatives Greater Los Angeles staff.
