GRID Alternatives was awarded a $1.7 million grant from the California Energy Commission (CEC) for a microgrid community solar project and battery backup system on the Soboba Band of Cahuilla and Luiseño Indian Tribe Reservation in San Jacinto, Calif.
GRID Alternatives continues to make a huge impact on the communities we serve, despite this challenging Covid-19 pandemic year. Here’s an overview of GRID Alternative Inland Empire’s (GRID IE) accomplishments in 2020:
Claudia Alvarado and her husband moved from Escondido to the City of Perris five years ago with their four daughters.
GRID Alternatives Inland Empire (GRID IE) and the City of Ontario partnered in the beginning of 2020 to launch TCC Ontario Solar Homes Initiative & Neighborhood Empowerment (SHINE) Program.
Heidi is a certified home healthcare nurse and her husband works as a plumber. Her and her husband and five children moved from the South Bay area to Moreno Valley, California last year where they purchased a new home.
GRID Alternatives is a national leader in making clean, affordable solar power accessible to underserved communities worldwide. GRID also provides valuable job training that equips and propels trainees into a successful career in solar. Basem has amassed over 200 volunteer hours with GRID since he first started volunteering in early 2012.
Despite this Covid-19 Pandemic, GRID’s construction team are still in the field facilitating solar installs in our communities, all while taking the necessary safety precautions. In March of this year, City of Fontana homeowner Wilda was one of the first homes installed with solar during this pandemic.
