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 helps low-income families save money while bringing clean solar energy onto the grid, and providing volunteers and job seekers with hands-on experience in solar.  Since 2011, the North Valley office has been helping families go solar throughout northern California, from Sacramento to Siskiyou counties.   Join us and be a part of the clean energy transition-  become a client, volunteer or make a donation today!

West Sacramento Newsledger - River City students climb a roof and aim for the sun

For Fay and Russell Landry, one sunny day leads to another, for on Tuesday, November 18 they received a free photovoltaic solar energy system that not only will nearly eliminate their electrical costs while contributing to a greener planet, but offered the opportunity to River City High School students to be part of their solar system installation.

'Tis the season to give solar!

The holidays are just around the corner and GRID Alternatives North Valley is making it easier than ever to give back. This holiday season we invite you to give the gift of solar and help us in our mission to make renewable energy technology and hands-on solar job training available in underserved communities.
