Our community-centric approach puts the needs of the community first and engages residents in the process from start to finish so the systems stay in productive use for the long-term. Our program gives participants the opportunity to get hands-on with renewable energy and make a lasting impact in a community, while our projects demonstrate sustainable models for renewable energy development around the world.
About our program
GRID has more than ten years of experience with successful and sustainable rural electrification projects. The solar systems we install provide residents with basic services, remove obstacles to sustainable growth, and create economic opportunities for families and communities. GRID continues to work with communities to ensure that their long-term energy needs are being met. Learn more about our sustainable energy access model, case studies, and past projects.
Travel with us!
GRID provides opportunities for individuals and teams to travel with us to Nicaragua or Nepal, gaining a first-hand view of our international work in action while supporting sustainable rural electrification projects. You'll work alongside community members to install off-grid solar power, while experiencing full immersion in rural life and local culture. Program activities are designed for a deep experience that helps individuals understand more about their own culture, values, and underlying assumptions about global issues while learning about energy access solutions. Corporate and student experiences are also available! Learn more.
