This is the latest in a series of regular profiles introducing the GRID Alternatives Greater Los Angeles staff.
We recognized some special award recipients who were onhand: Juan Campos is our Student of the Year. Isaiah Alvarez is our Trainee of the Year.

"The amount of money this frees up for low-income families adds up to millions of dollars, and we're proud to be making Long Beach a stronger community in so many ways."

Solarthon kicked off at this start of this weekend with two great installs, perfectly highlighting the diverse cross-section of Los Angeles brought together in the name of solar.
