Partner with Us Partnership is central to the mission of GRID Alternatives. We bring together local affordable housing providers, job training groups, corporate sponsors, government agencies and other community-based organizations with strong roots in each community to make solar happen.

No experience is required. Whether you are a solar enthusiast, community activist, a volunteer with your company, or a college student looking for a meaningful way to spend your spring break, our licensed installers will teach you everything you need to know.
