On April 22, 2017 volunteers from Generation HAND, the NHP Foundation and GRID Alternatives joined forces for its first ever “Lending a HAND Community Day” to install solar panels at the Parkchester Apartment complex in Washington D.C.
The installation of these panels come at no cost to residents and provide savings on energy spending. Additionally, Parkchester Apartments is the first multi-family housing installment that GRID Alternatives is undertaking in the Mid-Atlantic region, which will provide a long-term solution to high energy bills.
“HAND is thrilled to partner with our member, NHPF, and GRID Alternatives,” said HAND’s Executive Director Heather Raspberry. “For our members, this activity is more than just a volunteer opportunity, but a reminder of the importance of the work that we do to ensure individuals and families across our region have healthy and sustainable housing that is also affordable.”
