Erica Mackie joins us today to discuss solar technology and her non-profit, GRID Alternatives. GRID Alternatives is a non-profit that installs solar electric systems exclusively in disadvantaged communities. They promote sustainability by training members of these communities on the installation and maintenance of solar technologies, providing them with job training and basic experience in the industry. Mackie discusses why solar technology is superior to traditional energy resources and how their work helps families reduce their utility bills, while also improving their quality of life through job training and access to these resources.
