Southern California documentary featuring GRID Alternatives cohort nominated for Emmy

Filmmakers behind Vision 2030, a documentary expose of the urban planning, technology initiatives, and solar equity that best realize the dream of a 21st-century Los Angeles, announced that their work received a nomination for the 2020 Los Angeles Area Emmy Awards today.

The television film has been included in list of nominees for the Cultural/History category. Vision 2030: Future of SoCal depicts beginning solar trainees from one of our Pacoima-based training cohorts (sponsored by Wells Fargo), who are spending time outside the northern San Fernando Valley to complete a single-family project in the Mojave Desert.

Also appearing in solar installation footage are women of color representing the successful Women in Solar program we run. They include Supervisor Natalie Andrade and East L.A. mother and student Stephanie Stephenson, who got her solar energy job at Sunrun.

You can watch Vision 2030 online.

Our special thanks go out to Wells Fargo and Marcia Choo for their investment in the solar workforce, which allows stories like these to happen through GRID Alternatives Greater Los Angeles training.
