My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for GRID Alternatives, Oakland, CA, USA
I LOVE this organization!!! They install solar panels for low-income homeowners with the help of volunteers and job trainees. This provides triple benefit: (1) Helping the environment by reducing greenhouse gases (2) Helping low-income homeowners by giving access to renewable energy to those who are often most impacted by pollution, (3) Helping people interested in the solar industry acquire skills and thus train them for future jobs. This organization has installations throughout the state of California. I volunteered with the Fresno office (Central Valley), the staff was wonderful, patient, and knowledgeable. Very diverse and fun bunch of volunteers, I enjoy every day installing with GRID Alternatives and always look forward to the next. I am helping my community and at the same time helping myself.
