Despite wildfire smoke, snow storms, and a global pandemic, GRID Tribal Program’s work to promote energy sovereignty and job readiness continued.
GRID Alternatives strongly condemns the violent assault that took place in our nation’s capitol on January 6th. Our thoughts are with our Mid-Atlantic staff, all those whose home city was invaded by white supremacists, everyone on Capitol Hill who was terrorized, and all who continue to be appalled, hurt, and frightened by the attempted coup.
With a historic election turnout, the win for President-elect Biden and Vice President-elect Harris gives us a fighting chance for environmental justice and a future powered by equitable clean energy.
On the ballot this year: Climate action. Environmental justice. Clean energy. Racial justice. Economic equity. Solar jobs.
Twelve tribes have been selected for grants for new clean energy projects from Tribal Solar Accelerator Fund!
We are proud of our tribal partnerships and programs, which are led by tribal staff who are passionate about supporting tribal communities in the transition to a clean energy future.
