These annual events make a real difference in the lives of the families who will live in these houses, and for the environment. Each installed solar system could save a family that might not otherwise have access to solar $25,000 on their electric bills over the course of its lifetime. Collectively, the nine installed systems are expected to save over $222,000 on energy costs. On the environmental end, these systems will offset nearly 460 tons of carbon emissions -- the equivalent of planting at least 10,000 trees!
“I’m so proud to be part of the group of people who have solar,” said GRID Alternatives client Victor Carillo. “When I talk about GRID, I always bring my contracts and bills because people never believe that I got solar installed at no cost, and that my bills are now so low. It has made such a difference in my life, and for my family. For those who know what GRID does, let’s spread the word about what a great benefit it is to our community.”
“We had a fantastic crew from Enphase out on Saturday,” said Katelyn Costa from GRID Alternatives. “They were super enthusiastic, and a blast to work with.” Enphase is extremely proud of the employees that gave away a Saturday to make a difference in others’ lives and the environment, while helping Enphase get closer to its ultimate goal: bringing clean energy to everyone.
