The Solar Futures program leverages GRID Alternatives’ hands-on solar installation model in order to educate and inspire the next generation of solar leaders. The program’s initial emphasis will be on supporting programming for high school students in California’s Inland Empire and San Joaquin Valley, combining classroom-based sessions with real-world experience installing solar for GRID Alternatives’ income-qualified clients.
The Solar Futures program is supported by SunPower.
