Women in Solar Initiative

GRID Alternatives is leading a National Women in Solar Initiative to bring more women into the solar industry and support them in their professional advancement. Solar jobs are growing by 20% a year, and women’s voices, talents and leadership are needed more than ever to build a strong and sustainable industry. Join us!

Tune into our webcast series

We host a quarterly webcast series featuring panel discussions with women in all parts of the solar industry. Make sure to join our email list to learn about upcoming discussions and watch all of them here


Get on the roof

A great first step for women interested in solar is to volunteer with GRID Alternatives and get hands-on installation experience while giving back to your community. No experience necessary – we’ll teach you everything you need to know. Learn more at www.gridalternatives.org/volunteer or click here to sign up today.


Develop your installation skills

GRID Alternatives’ Installation Training Programs give women who want to take it to the next level the chance to gain more skills, develop their leadership potential, and access solar job opportunities. Visit our Installation Training Programs page or contact your local volunteer coordinator to learn more.


Participate in a women’s build

“We Build” events are women-only installations where you’ll get to network with your peers while getting hands-on with solar. Join one of our events or organize your own team. Contact your local office to learn more.


Join the GRID Alternatives team

Our SolarCorps Fellowships offer opportunities for highly motivated and enthusiastic people to join GRID Alternatives for a one-year term in service to their community.  Fellows will gain valuable experience in the solar and non-profit industry to help launch their career while making significant contributions to GRID Alternatives and the broader community. Visit our jobs page for openings.


Join the "We Give" Circle

The "We Give" circle brings together women who believe in the power of renewable energy to change lives and communities. The circle fosters connections between women in solar and related fields and enhances women’s presence and voice in the solar industry. Join us: invest time, talent and treasure to catalyze the advancement of women both working in and benefitting from renewable energy. Click here to give $2,500 or more to become a member or contact Cassie Gruenstein at cgruenstein@gridalternatives.org for more information.
