Solarthon is GRID Alternatives' signature community installation event, a fundraiser and solar block party that brings together hundreds of people--individual fundraisers, corporate sponsors, job trainees, community leaders and the homeowners themselves--to install multiple systems in one neighborhood in one day.

Funds raised at Solarthon events support GRID Alternatives’ work to bring clean, affordable energy and hands-on solar installation experience to families and workers that need it most. Participants get hands-on experience installing solar for local families, network with other solar enthusiasts and solar installion companies, and have fun while making a different in their community. For corporate sponsors, the event is an opportunity to demonstrate their commitment to environmental and community sustainability.

From Redding down to Temecula, Solarthon is bringing renewable energy to low-income neighborhoods. This year's Solarthons kicked off with an event in Goshen on April 27 and ended in Temecula Nov. 9.
