Learn about GRID Alternatives North Valley

GRID Alternatives helps low-income families save money while bringing clean solar energy onto the grid, and providing volunteers and job seekers with hands-on experience in the solar industry. Since 2011, the North Valley office has been helping families go solar throughout Northern California, from Sacramento to Siskiyou County. We provide families in Sacramento County who live on a limited or fixed income with NO-COST solar systems that save those families up to 90% on their monthly SMUD bills.
