Central Coast Solarthon

Thanks to all our supporters and volunteers!

You made it happen!

Solarthons are our largest installation events of the year; annual solar block parties to raise funds for and awareness of our work around the state. In 2013, GRID Alternatives Central Coast held two Solarthon events to reach communities at both ends of our long coastal territory.

Our first Solarthon was held in Castroville, near Monterey, on June 22nd. Click here to read all about the five homeowners we helped that day!Our second Solarthon was held in San Luis Obispo on Aug. 24th. Read our blog post and see news coverage of that amazing day.
