Solar Programs

GRID Alternatives makes solar power accessible to families who need the savings most, while providing hands-on solar installation experience to volunteers and job trainees.

Single-Family Solar

We provide low-to-no cost solar electric systems to families that qualify as low income, and install them using a barnraising model that gives volunteers and job trainees hands-on experience they can use to get jobs in the growing solar industry. In California, GRID Alternatives is the statewide program administrator for the Single-Family Affordable Solar Homes (SASH) program and the solar portion of the Low-Income Weatherization Program (LIWP).

Multifamily Solar

We make solar easy for multifamily affordable housing developers, owners and operators by providing no-cost comprehensive assistance and turnkey in-house solar design and installation services.

Community Solar

GRID, in partnership with cooperative, municipal and investor-owned utilities, is developing the first community solar arrays in the country that exclusively benefit underserved communities, as well as collaborating with for-profit community solar developers to help ensure that the energy generated by their community solar systems are accessible to all.
