Bayview-Hunter's Point

Like many low-income neighborhoods, the Bayview-Hunter's Point neighborhood of San Francisco has a long history of environmental degradation: it houses one third of San Francisco's hazardous waste sites and was downwind from California's dirtiest peaker power plant until community activism forced its closure in 2010. One in six children there suffer from asthma, and the prevalence of chronic illness is four times the statewide average.

Since 2006, GRID Alternatives has partnered with 137 families to provide clean, renewable solar energy that both saves them money and helps clean the air. It does something else too: it creates solar advocates that help spread solar to more homes and more communities, a win-win for families and the environment.
