Enphase has renewed its partnership with GRID Alternatives to donate microinverters to low-income solar customers.
“Partnerships like this help make the environmental and economic benefits of the clean energy economy accessible to families and workers across the country,” said Tim Sears, GRID Alternatives COO and co-founder.
To commemorate the renewed collaboration, Enphase employees joined GRID Alternatives on Friday, May 31, volunteering their time to install solar for an income-qualified California family. Enphase microinverter technology was used to provide the household with 5.3 kilowatts of no-cost solar energy, potentially saving the family more than $44,896 over the lifetime of their solar system.
“The work with GRID Alternatives has always been an important opportunity for Enphase to bring solar to underserved communities, and these corporate workdays allow all Enphase employees an opportunity to get hands-on experience with our products,” said JD Dillon, VP of marketing at Enphase Energy. “GRID Alternatives also delivers solar job training as part of their mission. Small and mid-sized installation companies install much of the solar energy deployed in the U.S., and having a workforce of well-trained installation technicians is a key part of the solar value chain.”
