Dorothy Stallworth has seen a lot in the more than 40 years she has spent living in Menlo Park. But never, she shared, has she experienced anything like GRID Alternatives’ 12th Annual Solarthon, which recently filled her small Belle Haven neighborhood with more than 120 volunteers, job trainees, and partners on Saturday, June 10th.
On a cool Saturday morning in the Ocean View neighborhood, Habitat for Humanity Greater San Francisco held an emotional celebration dedicating 28 new affordable homes for low-income families, with a solar system - installed by GRID Alternatives - on every roof. The development, called Habitat Terrace, arose from what was once a vacant lot to become beautiful three story homes for families in need.
