Providing solar installation training to individuals who want to enter the solar industry is a crucial component of GRID Alternatives Inland Empire’s (GRID IE) community work. Accessibility to hands-on solar installation training gives individuals the skills needed to land and secure a job in a good paying and growing industry. Therefore, GRID strives to connect trainees to as many opportunities available, including paid training opportunities. 

GRID Alternatives Inland Empire provides hands-on classroom education and curriculum, as well as invaluable on-the roof job training through its Solar Futures program. This program equips youth with the tools necessary to propel them into a promising solar career. GRID IE’s mission to build community-powered solutions to advance economic and environmental justice through renewable energy could not be possible without our community partners.
