Get involved with Los Angeles Solarthon 2018!

Solarthon is an annual solar installation event in the Greater Los Angeles area, where volunteers come together to install solar for a community that needs it most.

Our Solarthons have brought together people from all walks of life to install solar electric systems for multiple low-income families in neighborhoods across the region. During this summer's Solarthon, we are proud to include a local organization that is helping those in need as a service of our nonprofit program.

Solarthon is GRID GLA's largest community event of the year!

This Year's Event

Over a single day, GRID supporters and volunteers will bring a ground-mount solar electric system to a site owned by The Painted Turtle in Los Angeles County while raising money for GRID Alternatives GLA.

The Benefits of Sponsorship

For corporate sponsors, Solarthon is an opportunity to demonstrate commitment to environmental and community sustainability. Put together a team of your employee volunteers or sponsor a team of job trainees from one of our local partners, all while creating a better experience for youth who will have the time of their lives with Painted Turtle staff! (Sponsorship benefits can include prominent signage, logos on event marketing materials, speaking opportunities, media outreach and more – plus the benefits of participating in a fun and meaningful community event!)
