With your support for environmental justice, GRID solar and battery storage will be coming to Wilmington!

Thank you for your amazing support. Through the gifts of more than sixty individuals, GRID Alternatives Greater Los Angeles and IDEPSCA (Instituto de Educación Popular del Sur de California) have been able to meet our year-end giving goal! Donors from across Los Angeles and beyond helped us raise more than $11,000 for solar and storage.

The installation of a GRID system will allow IDEPSCA to retire a dirty generator, currently used for eight to twelve hours a day to supply off-grid power to their Harbor City Community Job Center. The job center, located in Wilmington, helps more than 100 individuals annually as they look for safe, beneficial employment. The system represents a huge step forward for this community, which is heavily made up of immigrants. Your generous donations will help working people across the South Bay!

Stay tuned for more about the installation in 2019.
