A nonprofit devoted to shifting the nation from fossil fuels is reaching out to young people, providing STEM education and job training in solar installation.

Nestled in the heart of wine country in Temecula, California, Madera Vista Apartments is a 110-unit mixed-income project, which is the first multifamily solar installation in this region for GRID Alternatives Inland Empire (GRID IE).

In March 2016, the U.S. Department of Energy announced that the Bishop Paiute Tribe was selected for funding to install 120 kilowatts of solar photovoltaics on 34 single-family, low-income homes. Leveraging GRID Alternatives' position as the program manager for California's Single-family Affordable Solar Homes (SASH) Program, the GRID team was able to help the Bishop Paiute Tribe install five solar PV systems with rebates from SASH. 

GRID Alternatives installs solar systems on five homes for members of the Torres Martinez Desert Cahuilla Indian Tribe while providing volunteers with job training. GRID has partnered with more than 30 tribes nationwide to provide solar assistance.

40 students from five Inland Empire high schools got to work installing no-cost solar panels on Moreno Valley homes as part of the Solar Futures program. The program connects them with training in the solar industry all while helping the environment and helping local families save thousands on their power bills.
