Grid Alternatives

GRID Alternatives envisions a rapid, equitable transition to a world powered by renewable energy that benefits everyone. Our mission is to build community-powered solutions to advance economic and environmental justice through renewable energy. As the nation’s largest nonprofit solar installer, GRID partners with affordable housing organizations, job training groups, government agencies, municipalities, utilities, and local communities to make solar and renewable energy technology a win for everyone. Through our unique, people-first model, we are putting money back into families’ pockets, reducing the energy cost burden for housing providers, and jumpstarting well-paying clean energy careers. We have over 10 years of experience serving disinvested communities in the greater Sacramento region with energy savings and workforce development, positioning us to contribute valuably to the planning phase of this CERF collaborative through an environmental justice, employment, and equitable climate solutions implementation lens.
