GRID Alternatives began with a simple idea: solar power should be available to all. Since 2001, GRID has worked side by side with low-income communities to reduce climate injustice and provide job training for the new green economy. We have a shared vision to continue this work at a time where the need is increasing. This need will only be met with support from people like you.
Schoolteacher Jonathan Fong lives in a modest row home on a steep hill in the Oceanview neighborhood of southwest San Francisco, a city whose housing costs are so high, a teacher’s salary is barely enough to live on.
Earlier this year, GRID joined the Global Climate Strike as a supporting organization, and many of our staff across the country joined locally organized events and demonstrations to show solidarity. Our Communications Assistant, Marissa Leshnov, joined members of our Bay Area team to document the climate strike in San Francisco, California.
