NAACP Helps 2nd Family Get Free Solar

Like so many things, the benefits of inexpensive solar power are not as available to persons of color as they are to white folks.  The NAACP’s Solar Equity Initiative aims to change that, by providing solar power of various forms to persons of color.

In line with the Solar Equity Initiative, GRID Alternatives installs solar systems for free for people with low and moderate incomes.  One of their partners is Sunrun, a national solar energy company.  These companies, together with community and NAACP volunteers, spent the two days installing solar panels on the home of a second San Diego family!

Beside benefitting the family with reduced energy costs, this program also provides green jobs training for those interested; please visit GRID Alternatives if you are interested in applying for a solar system, learning to be a solar installer, or just want to volunteer your time doing good for the community and the environment.

You can read more about the installation and see more pictures and video at KPBS.  You can also read about our first install here.
