Schneider Electric and GRID Alternatives, a nonprofit solar installer in the U.S., are partnering to provide and install solar photovoltaic systems for low-income homeowners while preparing workers for jobs in the solar industry.
Through this partnership, Schneider Electric will provide in-kind donations of the company's residential Context TX grid-tie solar inverters to support GRID Alternatives' Solar Affordable Housing Program, a program that engages volunteers and job trainees in installing solar in underserved communities.
In addition to donating solar inverters, Schneider Electric employees have been participating in several of GRID Alternatives' community installation events across the U.S.
"Through Schneider Electric's donation of both products and volunteer time, GRID Alternatives is able to further our mission of providing clean, affordable power and clean tech job skills toÂ communities that need them most," says Erica Mackie, GRID Alternatives' co-founder and CEO." Partnerships like these are critical in helping us make solar accessible to all."
