Volunteering with GRID Bay Area
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.
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.
