On November 3, 2018, volunteers from WGL Holdings joined GRID Alternatives Mid-Atlantic to install solar for two families in the District of Columbia as part of their Annual Day of Weatherization.
GRID Alternatives Mid-Atlantic is engaged in solar policy advocacy in the District of Columbia, Maryland, Virginia, and elsewhere along the East Coast to promote a clean energy transition that includes everyone.
Solar is a fast growing industry with career paths for a variety of interests and skillsets. Plus, you get paid to fight climate change!
We believe that everyone should benefit from solar technology.
For our new SolarCorps, GRID is a new beginning.
This past week, Kaly Moore and Serena Bruce celebrated their fifth and sixth anniversaries at GRID. Both women superstars started out as Construction SolarCorps Fellows in the Central Coast California office, and now, both are managers in the GRID Mid-Atlantic office. They reflect on how far they have come since starting at GRID – and give some advice to the incoming SolarCorps Fellows.
“I’m on a single income that I get at the beginning of the month, and by the 10th, I’m broke,” shares Mrs. Morris, noting that the lower energy bills brought by solar would be a big help, if it weren’t for the up-front cost.
Justan Randolph, a team leader for the 2018 summer cohort, would be the first to tell you that it's not just the trainees that are benefiting from the professional development opportunities offered by Solar Works DC.
“It still doesn’t feel like work.” This is how Batrina, a local Washingtonian, describes her new Workforce Training Supervisor position with GRID.
To date, GRID Alternatives Mid-Atlantic has installed over 180 solar systems in the DC metro area.
