Join CEA and Empower Our Future in getting to know GRID Alternatives, Colorado, a nonprofit organization that makes renewable energy technology and training accessible to under-served communities. GRID uses a model similar to that of Habitat for Humanity, training volunteers in how to install distributed solar PV systems. Along with these volunteers, GRID brings together community partners and job trainees to implement solar power and energy efficiency for low-income communities, providing energy cost savings, and valuable hands-on experience, while expanding solar access throughout the state.

If you’ve ever thought you might want to learn how to do rooftop solar installations, or if you’re passionate about making sure that the developing renewable energy economy is accessible to everyone,  come learn more about GRID Alternatives.

Learn more about them and their work over on their website.
