The Solangelist Up On The Roof

Solangelist in yellow hardhat with fellow GRID Alt volunteers

On Monday and Tuesday of last week the Reverend Ron and I were in El Cajon, California working on our first volunteer solar install with our new friends from GRID Alternatives.  It was even more fun and more enriching than I imagined it would be.  And I learned more than I thought I could in just 48 hours.  That’s thanks to the truly expert advice I got from our GRID team leaders.

I’m looking forward to writing all about it and some of what I learned.  But until I get the time later this week to give you all the Greenius details and flavor of the gig, here’s the report from Miguel Reza of GRID Alt from their web site.  That’s Miguel there on the roof wearing the red shirt and the orange hard hat – a daring fashion choice, but he makes it work.

GRID Alternatives San Diego Accomplishes First “Complete” Install

It was a first for many staff and volunteers in San Diego. But, it sure won’t be the last. On April 13 and 14, GRID Alternatives took a crack at their first full install in the City of El Cajon about 20 minutes east of downtown San Diego.
