Grid Alternatives – Troops to Solar Women Veteran Install

July 11, 2016

On July 9th, Women Veterans Alliance area partnered with Grid Alternatives as part of the “Troops to Solar” Women Veterans Build, to install solar panels on Master Sergeant Grid ladies - Grid Alternatives - Troops to Solar Women Veteran InstallHardeep Harrian’s home.

Letter from GRID:

GRID Alternatives would like to extend a hearty thank you to the Women Veterans Alliance for helping us get in touch with female veterans to help install a solar electric system on the home of an active female reservist! If you  missed the install information on KCRA you can follow a link here to see a short clip about it.

Local support is key to bringing the benefits of renewable energy technology and training to these deserving communities.  We simply cannot do this work without support and collaboration from groups like the Women Veterans Alliance.

The impact of this install is significant. The 6 women veterans helped to install a 4.2 DC kW solar energy system for the Harrian family. These solar energy system’s greenhouse gas offset is equivalent to planting nearly 1,888 trees!  Not bad for a day’s work!
