California Is Giving Away FREE Solar Panels To Its Poorest Residents

• True Activist

Many are inspired to reduce their carbon footprint and implement sustainable technologies, but the cost of such luxuries are a major deterrent for many middle-class and lower-income families.

Thanks to legislation introduced by Senator Kevin de León, however, soon some of California's poorest residents will receive solar technology for free!

The Oakland-based non-profit GRID Alternatives intends on giving away 1,600 free solar panels to the residents in the lowest economic class in California by 2016.

The initiative was launched after funds were gathered under the Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund (GCRF), the state's cap-and-trade program designed to discourage carbon dioxide emissions.
