Sustainable building research students from the Rosebud Sioux Nation in South Dakota volunteered on a solar installation in Arvada, Colorado in June. The students participated in the month-long Sustainable Building Research and Mentoring Program for Tribal youth hosted by the University of Colorado Boulder where they learn about energy efficiency, renewable energy and sustainable housing, and building systems.

GRID Alternatives Central Coast wants to thank all of our supporters who attended the 45th annual Santa Barbara Earth Day Festival! Our crew headed out to Alameda Park in Santa Barbara the weekend of April 18 and 19 to spread the word about our mission to make renewable energy technology and job training accessible to underserved communities. We set up a booth in the Live Green section of the park where we engaged hundreds of people in dialogue about our vision of a successful transition to clean, renewable energy that includes everyone.
