Grid Alternatives Providing Solar Power To Disadvantaged Communitites

Enphase and Grid Alternatives have expanded their partnership to include another 3MW of solar energy that will benefit low-income residents and communities across the country. The non-governmental organization Grid Alternatives is working with the mircroinverter supplier, Enphase to install solar panels in disadvantaged communities through its non-profit program.

In their five year partnership, they have installed more than 1,900 solar arrays, bringing clean and renewable energy to those who could not afford it. In addition to providing the technology, Enphase will also provide job training to communities to further enable them to transit into the usage of clean energy.

Just last week, manufacturer SunPower also donated 1 MW to Grid Alternatives as well, in a collaboration to boost their Solar Futures Program that brings solar power to American classrooms in California.
