Single-family Solar Installations
The project will install solar photovoltaic systems benefitting 108 income-qualified Stockton single-family homeowners in the Project Area. GRID will also contribute leverage funding from State of California low-income solar rebates to be directed toward roof repairs and electrical service panel upgrades to make otherwise ineligible homes “solar ready”, or prepare them for full-building electrification or electric vehicle supply equipment. GRID will partner with community-based organizations to provide referrals to the solar and training programs.
