Programmatic Partnerships

Job Training Organizations 

The expanding solar industry is one of the bright spots in an otherwise slow labor market. Employers added 13 percent more jobs in 2012 over 2011, but four out of five solar companies say they can’t find applicants with enough relevant experience. GRID Alternatives Greater Los Angeles provides a classroom in the field for job training organizations, giving their students the experience and networking opportunities they need to land a great job!  Each workday is coordinated with the training program’s structure and curriculum to ensure that every single person has the chance to complete a solar installation, from start to finish. Interested in partnering with us? Contact Adewale OgunBadejo at aogunbadejo@gridalternatives.org or call (310) 735-9765

Affordable Housing Organizations

Low-income homeowners throughout Greater Los Angeles have to make hard decisions every day about how to spend their limited resources. Solar power contributes to long-term financial security for these families, insulating them from fluctuating energy prices and helping keep them in their homes. At GRID, we help local affordable housing developers integrate solar power into new and existing developments for low-income homeowners. Through our partnership, local housing developers and community groups help us identify those individuals who can most benefit from our services. To find out more about partnering with us, please contact Alex Turek at aturek@gridalternatives.org or (310) 579-9196.
