In our area, partners like Homeboy Industries help us bring our services to populations with the highest need.

We partner with local governments throughout the region to help them address housing affordability, provide meaningful workforce development opportunities for residents, and meet their renewable energy goals. In the Greater Los Angeles region, GRID has partnerships with cities including the City of Pasadena, the City of El Monte, the City of Paramount, the City of Pomona, and more.


Utility Partnerships

We help electric utilities develop programs and solar projects that meet their renewable energy goals and address energy affordability for low-income customers.


Affordable Housing Partnerships

We partner with both single-family and multifamily affordable housing providers to develop solar projects that make their housing more environmentally sustainable, reduce electricity costs for residents, and provide solar workforce training opportunities for community members. Affordable housing partners include LINC Housing, Community Corporation of Santa Monica, and Esperanza Community Housing. Learn about our technical assistance program for multifamily housing.
