GRID Alternative's annual Solarthon brought sponsors and volunteers together to provide solar-energy installations for low-income families.
Kyle Burman, who donated to Solarthon, works on wiring and securing the junction box after placing Suntech solar panels. This year Solarthon raised more than $12,000 for GRID Alternative's work in the Greater L.A. area, and installed nine solar-energy systems on deserving families' homes.
