COMMUNITY SOLAR INSTALLATIONS
As a part of our work, Solar Austin works to partner with other local nonprofits and agencies to install solar systems on their facilities.
Through this grassroots community project and with the help of our sponsors and a fleet of volunteers, Solar Austin strives to increase awareness and access to the benefits of solar technology to underserved Austin neighborhoods.
Past Installation Projects
Solar Austin is now developing its third project under the Community Installation Host program, as a part of its organizational commitment to collaboration, diversity, equity, and inclusion. Most recently, Solar Austin installed an 8.64 KW rooftop system at East Austin Facility. The Children’s Haven Association, a historical non-profit in the Heart of the East Austin Blackland community has operated in the same location for nearly seven decades. The facility and its collaborative programs have been a stabilizing force in the community. Its earlier programs provided daycare, food, and medical services for low-income families.
Solar Austin is thrilled to partner with community-embedded organizations that enable our projects to connect with a diverse community of people across races, social-economic statuses, and generations.
Solar Austin and The Children’s Haven Association continue to conduct “Solar Camps” at TCHA. These Solar Camps give attendees an overview of all the components related to solar installation, from footwear to safety harnesses. Solar Camps will be held at all of our installation sites, and we hope to entice more community engagement in renewable energy. Solar Austin is delighted to work with multiple installation partners and manufacturers whose support facilitates this project
