Bay Area

GRID Alternatives' vision is a transition to clean, renewable energy that includes everyone. Our mission is to make renewable energy technology and training available to underserved communities.

GRID Alternatives Bay Area leads teams of volunteers and job trainees to install solar electric systems for low-income families from Santa Clara to Sonoma County, providing families with needed savings and giving Bay Area workers hands-on experience to help them find jobs in the green-tech economy. Additionally, the North Coast Tribal Satellite Office serves rural and tribal members in Del Norte, Humboldt, Lake, Mendocino, and upper Sonoma counties.

Huey Jones

 “The only thing I pay for is gas,” says Huey Jones, “so I just enjoy myself.” Huey, elderly homeowner and longtime resident of Richmond, CA, got solar on his home in 2010 through GRID Alternatives. Huey has a lot of youthful energy for a man in his 80's, and when he noticed something curious going on in his neighborhood, he didn't miss the opportunity to get in on the action. “I seen they put it up on my neighbor’s house, and all the people coming around taking pictures, and I’m nosy you know, I wanted to find out what was going on.” says Huey of his first glimpse of a GRID install.
