Job Training Partnerships

We partner with local job training organizations to provide individuals hands-on experience and networking opportunities, complementing classroom learning and preparing them for employment. In the District, our job training is run through Solar Works DC, a DC funded job training program.


Local Government & Municipal Partnerships

We partner with local governments throughout the region to help them address housing affordability, provide meaningful workforce development opportunities for residents, and meet their renewable energy goals. In the District, GRID has partnered with the Department of Energy and the Environment and the Department of Employment Services to implement Solar Works DC, a hands-on job training and low-income solar installation program. GRID has previously partnered with the City of Baltimore to bring 31 homes solar energy. 


Utility Partnerships

We help electric utilities develop programs and solar projects meet their renewable energy goals and address energy affordability for low-income customers.


Affordable Housing Partnerships

We partner with both single-family and multifamily affordable housing providers to develop solar projects that make their housing more environmentally sustainable, reduce electricity costs for residents, and provide solar workforce training opportunities for community members. Affordable housing partners include DC Housing Authority, the NHP Foundation, The Coalition for Non-Profit Housing and Economic Development (CNHED), and Housing Association of Nonprofit Developers (HAND). Learn about our technical assistance program for multifamily housing.
