Solarthon in the North Valley!

 


Solarthon is our largest community installation event of the year!


Solarthon is a fundraiser and solar installation block party, where volunteers come together to install solar for a community that needs it most. This fun day in the sun brings together hundreds of GRID supporters, job trainees and clients to install solar electric systems for multiple low-income families in a single neighborhood.

Participants get hands-on experience installing solar for local families, network with other solar enthusiasts, and have fun while making a difference in their community. For corporate sponsors, the event is an opportunity to demonstrate their commitment to environmental and community sustainability.

Last year, GRID Alternatives North Valley solarized houses in the Sacramento neighborhood of North City Farms, installing solar on 7 single family homes to provide 24kW of clean, renewable energy, thus offsetting of 460 tons of greenhouse gas emissions!

Interested in sponsoring or joining our next Solarthon? Contact Becca Russell at brussell@gridalternatives.org or 530-217-6113.
