GRID Alternatives Central Valley is pleased to announce the selection of Karina Gonzalez and David Griffin as the new Co-Executive Directors. GRID Alternatives is a leader in making clean, affordable solar energy, solar jobs, and clean mobility accessible to income-qualified communities and communities of color across the Central Valley.
Located in Madera, California, Valle de Las Brisas is an affordable housing development of charming single-story, Spanish-inspired, terracotta-roofed apartments in the heart of California’s San Joaquin Valley. It is also home to a community of approximately 81 senior residents. Tenants at Las Brisas enjoy amenities including spacious yards, a shared community pool, and now - energy from the sun.
The 49th training session of the Climate Reality Leadership Corps was recently held in Las Vegas. Tanksi Clairmont, Director of GRID Alternatives' Tribal Solar Accelerator Fund (TSAF), was amongst the selected speakers and panelists who highlighted the event, along with some notable celebrities including Property Brothers star Jonathan Scott and former Vice President, Al Gore. 
As AAPI Heritage Month draws to a close, we want to thank the AAPI staff at GRID Alternatives who have shared some of their stories with us this past month. We would also like to thank the Asian Pacific Environmental Network for joining us in a conversation on fighting for an environmentally just future, which you can watch here. We recognize that AAPI communities continue to face violent attacks and micro-aggressions in places of work, and want to uplift these resources: Stop AAPI Hate, Conflict De-Escalation training, Bystander Intervention training, and Responding to and Preventing Harassment training. 

In case you missed our staffs’ posts on GRID’s Instagram, we are sharing them here.
