About


GRID Alternatives Tri-State opened its doors in 2014 to make solar power and solar jobs accessible to underserved communities in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. We kicked off the program in fall 2013 with installations across the region in partnership with several local job training and in partnership with community-based organizations. In 2017, GRID Alternatives made the decision to wind down production operations in the region. GRID Tri-State now operates as a board-driven organization that focuses on advocating for strong low-income solar policies.

We continue to offer no-cost solar technical assistance to multifamily affordable housing owners throughout the Tri-State region, and help owners who want to move forward with projects bid them out to other local solar contractors. Learn more.
