In 2019, we created our main initiative - the Equitable Clean Energy Jobs program, in partnership with Huston-Tillotson University (Austin's oldest HBCU) and local solar companies. We have been overwhelmed by the success and the value of this program to Austinites and to other cities in Texas, and we have expanded our programming to include our "Pathways to Clean Energy Careers" program and solar installation camps starting this fall!
Your support is essential to ensuring the continued success of this solar initiative! Thanks to our amazing community of solar advocates, Solar Austin has already secured donated PV panels and the volunteered expertise of local electricians. Now we need your help going that last mile to cover the cost of the required power tools and safety installation equipment.
Our upcoming community installation projects, along with Solar Austin’s inclusive internship program and policy efforts, are focused on ensuring that the benefits of clean energy are equitably accessible to all. Thank you for being a part of our community!
