Central Coast

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 Central Coast leads teams of volunteers and job trainees to install solar electric systems for low-income families in the Central Coast area from Santa Barbara to Santa Cruz, providing families with needed savings and giving Central Coast workers hands-on experience to help them find jobs in the green-tech economy.
