Get involved with Solarthon 2016!

Solarthon is a solar installation block party and fundraiser, where volunteers come together to install solar for a community that needs it most. Solarthon brings together people from all walks of life - individual fundraisers, corporate sponsors, job trainees, community leaders and the homeowners themselves - to install solar electric systems for multiple low-income families in a single neighborhood.

Participants get hands-on experience installing solar for local families, network with other solar enthusiasts and solar installation companies, and have fun while making a difference in their community. For corporate sponsors, the event is an opportunity to demonstrate their commitment to environmental and community sustainability.

Sponsor a house for your employee volunteers or for a team of job trainees from one of our local partners. Sponsorship benefits can include prominent signage, logos on event marketing materials, speaking opportunities, media outreach and more - plus the benefits of participating in a fun and meaningful community event!

For more information, or to sign up for our next Solarthon, please contact Rina Gabbay at rgabbay@gridalternatives.org.
