Local Energy Provider Partners with Non-Profit to Provide Free Solar Installations

Sullivan Solar Power will volunteer with GRID Alternatives to install donated panels

We are grateful to be in a position to provide the gift of solar energy to families who need financial relief from high electricity costs most.

This new year will begin bright for five lucky San Diego County families. As a result of a successful 2012 Solar Holiday Drive, led by Sullivan Solar Power, a handful of low-income families will receive free solar panels for their homes. Just before the thanksgiving holiday, Sullivan Solar Power announced a partnership with California nonprofit organization, GRID Alternatives.

GRID Alternatives installs solar in communities that may not otherwise have access, with its’ Solar Affordable Housing Program. The organization mobilizes job trainees and other volunteers, providing hands-on experience installing solar panel systems. As a part of the partnership, Sullivan Solar Power team members will be volunteering their time to assist the GRID Alternatives team with the donated projects.

"GRID Alternatives is thrilled to have partnered with Sullivan Solar this holiday season to bring the gift of clean green power to families who really need the savings," said Paul Cleary, Regional Director of GRID Alternatives.

For every San Diego county resident that signed up to go solar with Sullivan Solar Power between November 21 and December 31, the company is donating one solar panel to GRID Alternatives. Collectively, 46 locally manufactured Kyocera solar panels will be installed on low-income residences at no cost to San Diego homeowners as a result of Sullivan Solar Power’s solar holiday drive and its’ donations to GRID Alternatives.

“The initiative ended more successfully than we had envisioned. We are blessed and grateful to be in a position to provide the gift of solar energy to families who need financial relief from high electricity costs most,” said Founder and President of Sullivan Solar Power, Daniel Sullivan.
