ANZA – GRID Alternatives Inland Empire, an affiliate of GRID Alternatives which makes clean renewable energy technology and job training accessible to communities who need it most, was awarded a $2.05 million grant under the California Department of Community Services and Development Low-income Weatherization Program, Community Solar Pilot Program and recently broke ground on its largest community-scale solar project to date.
This year, Interconnection went online for the first time ever. Instead of gathering in San Francisco, we were able to broadcast our speakers and honorees directly to people’s living rooms. Although we missed seeing everyone in person, it was a wonderful opportunity to connect remotely with our GRID family across the globe - nearly 200 households tuned in to watch the live event!
