SunPower Corp. today announced a new multi-year commitment to GRID Alternatives. Under the partnership, SunPower will donate more than 2MW of solar panels over a three-year period.

"SunPower is proud to extend our ten-year support of GRID Alternatives for another three years, as they continue to bring access to clean energy for everyone and expand their valuable education program," said Doug Richards, SunPower executive vice president. "GRID Alternatives is helping students understand and experience solar technology first-hand in an industry that is expected to grow with the popularity of renewable energy."
"We're so grateful to have a long-time partner like SunPower that shares our vision of an inclusive clean energy transition," said GRID Alternatives co-founder and CEO Erica Mackie. "SunPower's multi-year commitment allows us to continue growing our work nationally, helping underserved communities across the country access the clean power, financial savings and career opportunities solar provides."
