Multifamily Solar

The GRID Alternatives Multi-Family Commercial Team participated in the Housing California Conference on March 27-28, 2023 at the Town Country Convention Center in San Diego, California.  This year’s theme is Housing’s Next Chapter. As we enter the third year of a global pandemic, we have witnessed a historic response from both state and federal leadership and impactful shifts in resources and funding which urge us to think about how to carve a path towards housing justice that is intersectional, equitable, and urgent. 
Our construction team has been working hard on installing a 108 kW solar system on SagePointe, a three-story, 56-unit apartment community in the Wilmington neighborhood of Los Angeles. he new complex is for seniors 55 and older who have experienced homelessness and need stable housing with supportive services. The 243 solar panels will bring an expected $540,000 in net lifetime savings. 
GRID Alternatives is a mission-driven nonprofit solar installer with an innovative workforce development and community engagement model that integrates job training and tenant engagement into every aspect of our work. We make multifamily solar easy for affordable housing developers, tenants owners and operators.
