This week, Sterling sits down with Gwen Chang, Workforce Development and SolarCorps Volunteer and Daisy Meyer, Workforce Development Manager of GRID Alternatives. GRID’s mission is to make renewable energy technology and job training accessible to under-served communities. Using a unique, people-first model, GRID Bay Area develops and implements solar projects that serve qualifying households and affordable housing providers, while providing hands-on job training. GRID Bay Area has installed solar for more than 1,900 families to-date and helped households and housing providers save $52 million in lifetime electricity costs, while training over 7,289 people.
