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 Mendocino County, providing families with needed savings and giving Bay Area workers hands-on experience to help them find jobs in the green-tech economy. Be a part of the clean energy transition- become a client, volunteer or make a donation today!
