GRID Alternatives Central Coast leads teams of volunteers and job trainees to install solar electric systems for low-income families from Santa Barbara County to Santa Cruz County, providing families with needed savings and giving Central Coast workers hands-on experience to help them find jobs in the green-tech economy. Since 2010, we have installed 400 solar arrays, saved families $9 million, prevented 30,000 tons of greenhouse gases, and trained more than 1,100 people who donated more than 21,000 volunteer hours.
