Greater Los Angeles Solarthon

Solarthon is our largest installation event of the year, an annual solar block party to raise funds for and awareness of our work around Los Angeles, Orange and Ventura County.  Last September, we connected more than one hundred individuals - job trainees, employee volunteers from our corporate sponsors, and individual fundraisers - to help install solar electric systems for nine families in Long Beach. Check out our blog for highlights and some of the best moments from the day! 

This year, we are already gearing up for Solarthon 2014! Join us on August 2nd as we install solar for 5 families in Santa Ana, CA. Contact us at for information on how to get involved. 


Thank you to our 2013 sponsors:
