Get involved with the Greater Los Angeles 2019 Solarthon event!

More information coming soon!

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 many low-income families in neighborhoods across the region. During this year's Solarthon, we are proud to work with our community partners to install solar on multiple houses during a single day.

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 future for families who will enjoy the savings! (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!)
