Volunteer with GRID Bay Area

Volunteering with GRID Bay Area

**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.**

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.

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.
