Four-year, $2M grant to fund seed capital for GRID’s national expansion, innovation for new business models, and expansion of GRID’s collegiate programs, including Solar Spring Break®
OAKLAND, Calif., February 7, 2017 /3BL Media/ - GRID Alternatives, America’s largest nonprofit solar developer, today announced the Wells Fargo Foundation has committed to a four-year, $2 million grant to expand low-income solar access. The grant builds on more than $4 million Wells Fargo has invested in GRID Alternatives since 2008, catalyzing the national expansion of GRID’s work bringing solar power and job training to disadvantaged communities.
Boston, MA, October 21, 2014 /3BL Media/ — Energy Points, the source energy intelligence company, has achieved an unmatched level of granularity in automated electricity supply chain analysis, which will help companies reach emissions targets more quickly and get better overall results for their budgets. Those that are planning solar and other distributed energy projects in order to replace the grid’s emission-intensive energy sources have the most to gain.
How can we know where—and by how much—power from solar photovoltaics (PV) is better than grid electricity? What does this mean for solar subsidies?
One Method for Any Energy Source
Our approach to assessing source energy efficiency is the same for both solar power and grid electricity. And while our analysis is based on large datasets, the results are actually pretty easy to understand.
