GRID Alternatives honored Wells Fargo at its 10th Anniversary celebration in San Francisco. Pacific Gas & Electric Company also were honored at the event, where many supporters gathered to celebrate 10 years of great work bringing solar energy to underserved communities.

Since 2007, Wells Fargo team members have contributed more than 1,800 volunteer hours to GRID Alternatives, while also helping and exploring innovative financing models to help the nonprofit deploy more residential solar systems. Seven years ago, Wells Fargo donated $600,000 to help GRID Alternatives expand from one office to seven offices throughout California. Then, in 2012, Wells Fargo made a $2 million commitment to help bring clean, affordable solar energy to underserved communities in other states nationwide.
