GRID Alternatives' mission is to empower communities in need by providing renewable energy and energy efficiency services, equipment, and training. We believe making energy choices that are good for the environment can go hand-in-hand with improving the lives of those living in low-income communities. GRID Alternatives works collaboratively with communities and local organizations to identify specific needs and to develop renewable energy solutions that are environmentally, socially, and economically sustainable.
Give the gift of solar power today and fight poverty and climate change right here at home! Buying a solar panel for a low-income family is a great way to lower your carbon footprint while also supporting hard-working families struggling to meet their basic expenses. GRID Alternatives triples the impact of every donation through solar rebates and our nonprofit, volunteer-driven installation model. Donate today for yourself, or as a gift on behalf of a loved one. All donations are tax-deductible. Each solar panel generates $604 worth of long-term savings for a low-income family, and eliminates 4,853 pounds of greenhouse gas emissions from the atmosphere!
