Celebrating Black Achievement at GRID

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.

Meet Ugochukwu (Ugo)!

Ugo studied solar installation with our partner organization, Proteus Inc. After the first install with GRID Alternatives and listening to a presentation by a current staff member, he acquired a strong desire and admiration towards GRID and decided to volunteer. Within three months, he gained a Team Leader Certification and participated at Solarthon 2016, which he enjoyed very much. Ugo is now nearing his fifth year in the Construction Department and he considers himself very blessed to be employed by GRID Alternatives.
