Global Renewables Infrastructure Development (GRID) at UW is recruiting! GRID is a student-led organization focused on getting students involved with solar technology and helping apply it to off-grid communities. We’re an interdisciplinary mix of graduate and undergraduate students with backgrounds in engineering, natural sciences, social sciences, and more.  

 In the past, GRID has installed solar kits in post-Hurricane Maria Puerto Rico and non-electrified regions of Guatemala. Current projects include deploying a solar panel test system and collaborating with Kilowatts for Humanity to assist with their project in Dengeza, Zambia. 

Joining our team is an excellent opportunity to learn more about applications of renewable energy, the socioeconomic impact of technology integration or gain some experience with microgrids and data acquisition/analysis. Our first meeting will be Thursday, October 12th from 4-5 pm at MolES 115. Hope to see you there! 

If you’re interested in joining, please fill out this quick form so that we can keep in touch!
