This week we gathered with our friends and partners at the LGBTQ Center Long Beach as they powered-on their 54-panel, 17.280 kW Solar System, which will provide $240,000 in lifetime savings to the center. The money saved can empower The Center to invest in other lifesaving programs and services to the local LGBTQIA+ Community.
The event had 40 participants attending, 6 employers presenting, and 15 pending employment offers as a result. The fair was hosted at Terasaki Budokan, a nonprofit multipurpose sports and activities center in downtown LA (and also one of our commercial clients, having received rooftop solar through GRID GLA in 2019).
In honor of Latinx / Hispanic Heritage Month, we look at a grassroots community group created to help spread no-cost renewable energy in the primarily Latinx / Hispanic, historic neighborhood of Pacoima, CA.
