Get involved with Los Angeles Solarthon 2017!

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. This November we are proud to unite low-income communities from Watts to Pacoima for a record-setting L.A. Solarthon event.

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

This Year's Event

Over eight days, we'll bring solar to multiple veteran and low-income families (culminating on Veterans' Day) while raising money for GRID Alternatives GLA. Solarthon participants have fun while making a difference in communities across Los Angeles.

The Benefits of Sponsorship

For corporate sponsors, Solarthon is an opportunity to demonstrate commitment to environmental and community sustainability. Sponsor a house for your employee volunteers or for a team of job trainees from one of our local partners, all while giving back to Los Angeles veterans! (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!)
