Patricia, a recent GRID client and lifelong Stocktonian committed to advocating for her community’s access to mental health and housing services, especially for unhoused and underserved communities, serves on the Stockton Mayor's Round Table on Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) committee, as Commissioner of the Housing Authority of the County of San Joaquin, and is vice-chair of the city’s Behaviour Health Advisory Board.
Meet Brittney, a 2022-23 SolarCorps Construction Fellow, a graduate of our Installation Basics Training (IBT) program, and a current resident of Mirasol Village, where GRID Alternatives North Valley just installed a 137.9 kW solar photovoltaic system! We sat down with her to talk about her time in IBT, her transition into SolarCorps, and her experience living at Mirasol Village.

Solar PV (photovoltaic) technology has made great strides in the last decade and it’s easier now than ever to have your own system installed. However, while we would love to power every building with sunshine, there are many factors to consider when evaluating your building or site for a solar PV system. Not all solar systems are built equal.
