GoGreenSolar Supports Grid Alternatives’ SolarThon

Los Angeles community receives free solar energy, courtesy of Grid Alternatives and GoGreenSolar. This week, brand new solar panels are glittering in the quiet neighborhood of Willowbrook, Los Angeles. The panels will generate thirty one kilowatts of locally-produced energy and save home owners over three hundred thousand dollars over a twenty five year period. How much did the panels cost the home owners? Nothing. Grid Alternatives, a California-based non-profit group, hosts SolarThons across multiple cities where volunteers come together to fight foreclosures, unemployment, and pollution by providing free solar electric systems to low-income families. “Low-income families pay a much higher percentage of their income on electricity than the average household and our solar electric systems will reduce each homeowner’s monthly energy costs by an average of 80% which will help these families stay in their homes,” says Myshel Prasad, Development Officer at GRID Alternatives Greater Los Angeles. Grid Alternatives relies on donated time and money to accomplish its charitable work. This SolarThon, donates both. “We’re happy to support energy independence, especially to those most in need,” says Deep Patel, CEO of Patel, who has volunteered with Grid Alternatives for several years, also finds Grid Alternatives a great place to scout employees. “The people who volunteer with Grid Alternatives have good hearts and proven technical competence,” says Patel.

Purple Dave has donated his time to more than 30 solar system installs. “Grid Alternatives and share a similar mission.  We’re both here to improve the quality of human life through renewable energy solutions,” says Patel. “We look forward to turning more of our team’s energy into solar energy in the coming years.” About is a value added supplier of green energy products, services, technical support and financing to help you go green.
