"I think that they make you work hard and it’s good to get a good sweat sometimes and get to know your coworkers more outside of an office setting. And I think it was also really fantastic to learn a lot more about the project itself and the community."

- Brenda Chew, Smart Electric Power Alliance

Solar Workdays allow groups to team-build while giving back to the community. Our corporate volunteers have helped GRID install solar on everything from single family homes, saving homeowners money on their electricity bills, to large-scale multi-family projects, helping non-profits keep costs down for their tenants. Read about some of our past corporate builds! 

  • Wells Fargo helps a single family homeowner in Baltimore save approximately $800 annually
  • The Smart Electric Power Alliance sponsors two days on a multi-family project in Southeast DC
  • Constellation volunteers help us install a 90 kW solar system for an affordable senior living center
  • The NAACP joins us in Baltimore following the release of their "Lights Out in the Cold" energy access report
  • Part of WGL's annual Day of Weatherization was spent helping GRID staff install solar for tenants.
