Women in Solar

“Groups of women are kind of the best when it comes to getting things done efficiently and effectively,” said Nicole Steele. We Build is an all-women’s solar installation. part of GRID Alternatives’ national Women in Solar Program, working to build a diverse, equitable, and inclusive solar industry.
GRID Alternatives North Valley hosted another successful Vets Serving Vets installation at the home of Kenneth Brown last month in Sacramento. This special installation was inspired by our Troops to Solar initiative as well as our Women in Solar initiative, as five members of the Women’s Veterans Alliance stepped up to serve their fellow veteran.
Spring is in the air bringing nature to its prime and gifting us with bountiful sunshine, green landscapes and Spring Break! This spring, seven college students from Duke University traveled over 2,500 miles to help install a solar system for a low-income family and learn about renewable energy with GRID Alternatives.
GRID Alternatives Outreach Coordinator Katie Webster discovered a love for nature and animals growing up in Adairsville, Georgia, but upon graduating from Auburn University, she realized that she wanted to eschew scientific research for environmental work that would create more immediate change.
Genesha Burton, a pre-law student from Michigan State University, shared with us how her experience volunteering with GRID Alternatives through the Solar Spring Break program stoked her growing interest in environmental justice.
In honor of International Women’s Day, we sat down with three talented GRID women, Serena, Rozina, and Sienia, and asked them a little bit about themselves.
A rewarding first GRID install for Jenny and Melissa...
Pat Claycomb knew from an early age she wanted to work in the solar industry.
Marissa Torres sits at the reception desk at GRID Central Valley eagerly typing away. She is always quiet and polite but one should not mistake the dynamic force that lingers within this young woman. She is a queen on the rise with a mission to serve. GRID Alternatives is very proud to make her a permanent part of the family after her year of service through SolarCorps.
