Volunteer with GRID Bay Area

Volunteering with GRID Bay Area

All solar installation volunteer opportunities with GRID Alternatives are on pause until it is safe to gather in groups again.

Rest assured, our clients are still having solar systems installed by members of GRID's construction staff, and will begin to see the benefits of solar during this time.

Held monthly, GRID Bay Area hosts hands-on tools or practice roof trainings, community social events, discussions with industry experts on solar policy, renewable energy technology, climate activism and more! 

Workshops are open to anyone - sign up on the volunteer portal or via the Eventbrite link below. 

Our next workshop is:
A Celebration of Leadership: Welcoming GRID Bay Area's new Executive Director
Wednesday, September 9th at 5pm

Sign up for our newsletter to stay up to date on upcoming events.

Solar Installs
**All solar install volunteer opportunites are on pause at this time due to COVID-19 and with the safety of our volunteers, staff, and clients in mind.**

Volunteering on a solar installation with GRID Alternatives is a great way to give back to your community while getting hands-on with solar technology. No experience is required, our licensed installers will teach you everything you need to know. Create an account in our volunteer portal, attend a mandatory safety orientation, and request a spot for upcoming installs! 

Availability. Orientations are offered once or twice a month (online or in person at our Oakland office). Installs are posted to the portal on a rolling basis and typically take place Tuesday - Friday, with one Saturday install per month. Priority may be given to green job trainees or our member community for certain installs - details will be listed on the volunteer opportunity in the portal. Become a member today to gain access to more installs and special events with GRID Bay Area.

If you have solar PV skills or expertise that you would like to share and/or teach at a GRID workshop, reach out to trainingba@gridalternatives.org.
