GRID Alternatives: Solarthon for a Sustainable Future
GRID Alternatives' goal is to create a future of clean, renewable energy that includes everyone. This means installing solar panels and providing job training in underserved communities.
From their website:
"Through GRID Alternatives, [the founders] developed a model to make solar PV technology practical and accessible for low-income communities that need the savings and jobs the most, yet have the least access. By taking a broader approach to solar as not just an environmental good but also a real-world solution to a real-world economic problem in these communities, GRID Alternatives is helping to set the stage for large-scale solar adoption nationwide."
Big changes in green energy often involve top-down solutions. I love that GRID Alternatives sees the importance in reaching the people who need it most.
