Our team partnered with the Southern California Helpful Honda Dealers on Earth Day

Honda dealer employees and GRID personnel give each other high fives
Standing on the roof of their first Anaheim install, the Guys in Blue celebrate helping the Orange County homeowners with a GRID SIS.

Have you spotted the Helpful Honda Guys' iconic blue shirts and big smiles out on the town or on TV? Well, they stopped by a GRID jobsite in Anaheim to help the Palacios family go solar!

In addition to their volunteer time, Southern California Honda Dealers, with CBS EcoMedia, awarded GRID's Greater Los Angeles office a $200,000 grant to fix the roofs of otherwise qualifying families, eliminating that barrier for 25 families to go solar! Thanks to the Helpful Honda Guys and EcoMedia for being such stellar (and of course helpful) volunteers onsite and ensuring more families in SoCal are able to "fuel" their homes with sunshine.

Check out a short clip from their time on the roof with us and see how solar will help the Palacios family. 

Jennifer speaks for her whole household when she says that seeing some extra help show up (in familiar blue uniforms) was a great surprise. In fact, Jennifer's younger brother was just admitted to UC Santa Barbara. According to the Palacios family, the money they save by going solar will help make his tuition possible!

Back at GRID, we are excited to use the $200,000 gift towards much-needed reroofing projects, additional installs, and panel upgrades across our territories. The Helpful SoCal Solar Roofing program means even more opportunity are on the way for homeowners in our area—just in time for Earth Day!
