GRID Alternatives Mid-Atlantic's mission is to build community-powered solutions to advance economic and environmental justice through renewable energy.
Serving the community is our entire focus. We believe in extending career opportunities and the benefits of solar energy to underserved communities and communities of color. We also work with policymakers at the local, state, and federal level to push for an equitable renewable energy transition.
Our work wouldn't be possible without support from public and private organizations who share our vision for a rapid, equitable transition to renewable energy that includes everyone.
We gain support from:
- Partnerships with private corporations and organizations looking to make a difference in the community
- Donations from individuals that believe in advancing environmental justice
- Grants funded by city government and charitable foundations
Here's how you can help support our work.

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