GRID Alternatives Greater Los Angles leads teams of volunteers and job trainees to install solar electric systems for low-income families in Los Angeles, Orange and Ventura Counties, providing families with needed savings and giving area workers hands-on experience to help them find employment in the green-tech economy. Since we opened in 2007, we’ve helped over 850 low-income families go solar throughout the Greater Los Angeles region.

La Opinión - Ahorra en tu factura de energía: Instalan gratis paneles solares

Al mes en la casa de los Menjivar, donde viven 11 personas, se gasta alrededor de $125 dólares por consumo de energía eléctrica, pero en los próximos meses el recibo de la luz empezará a llegar tan bajo como los $20 dólares. La dramática reducción en el ‘bill' será gracias a los paneles solares que recientemente le instalaron de manera gratuita.

TV coverage of GRID Alternatives Greater Los Angeles' Women in Power installation. Top female executives and female job trainees from the Los Angeles Conservation Corps volunteered to install a solar power system for the Menjivar family, a family of 11 spanning three-generations residing in South Los Angeles. The Menjivar’s 4.16 kW solar system will result in approximately $1,360 in energy cost savings in the first year, and nearly $40,000 over its 30-year life.
