Sub-Contractor Partnership Program

GRID Alternatives partners with installers that have a proven record of high quality workmanship, outstanding customer service, and a steadfast commitment to our workforce development mission.

GRID Alternatives Sub-Contractor Partners

GRID Alternatives launched the Sub-Contractor Partnership Program (SPP) in 2010 to meet goals for numbers of installations through the Single-family Affordable Solar Homes (SASH) Program, and to serve clients in every California county. It now supports the installation goals of the Disadvantaged Communities – Single-Family Solar Homes (DAC-SASH) program.

Each SPP project requires the sub-contracting partner to hire an eligible job trainee to receive hands-on training and paid employment while working alongside experienced solar installers to further our green jobs training goals. More than 2,000 paid workday opportunities for job trainees have been created as a result.
