Solar United Neighbors of Texas

Solar United Neighbors is coming to the Lone Star State! Join us to help grow solar in your community.

Solar United Neighbors is a national non-profit organization dedicated to helping communities go solar, join together, and fight for their clean energy rights. We believe the transition to clean energy should be led by real people, and the benefits of clean energy technologies—solar, in particular—should be available to all Americans. We organize communities to go solar together and make smart investments in clean energy technologies, then mobilize them to build an enduring solar movement that fights for accessible, affordable clean energy.

Since our humble grassroots beginnings in 2007, we have expanded across the country to help thousands of people access the benefits of solar energy. We’ve helped more than 3,500 homes and businesses go solar through our local solar co-ops, investing $63 million into local economies through solar installations. We’ve offered solar education to nearly 25,000 individuals through our public information sessions, and have organized thousands more into a solar constituency actively fighting for clean energy rights in their communities through events and online programming.

And now, we’re coming to the Lone Star State!

Starting in early 2019, Solar United Neighbors will launch its 10th on-the-ground state program in Texas. Solar United Neighbors of Texas will help Texans across the state access affordable solar energy installations and organize a statewide movement of solar supporters to fight for a clean energy future for Texas that prioritizes accessibility, local control and customer benefits.

They say everything is bigger in Texas. Shouldn’t access to affordable solar energy be more available here too?

Texas’s small-but-mighty community of solar advocates has done tremendous work expanding solar from Austin to El Paso, Plano to Galveston. Lone Star solar capacity has grown significantly in recent years, with tremendous gains coming from large-scale installations in west Texas. Solar United Neighbors of Texas will work to bring this progress to the people—helping real Texans invest in solar solutions for their properties and access the full benefits of solar energy. We’ll increase solar access by organizing local solar co-ops to help neighbors go solar together and get a great deal on the solar system that’s right for them through the group’s bulk purchasing power. We’ll provide solar education across the state to teach residents and businesses about solar technology, the installation process, and solar economics. We’ll make solar fun for everyone—not just those of us interested in installing panels on our roof—by hosting solar-focused community events and festivals. And, finally, we’ll organize Texas’s diverse community of clean energy supporters into a vibrant new solar movement—one that will fight for policies that promote energy freedom and protect property rights while helping to build markets that make sure all Texans can access the benefits of solar energy. In order to be successful, we’ll need our movement to be strong across the state. Will you join us?

Sign up today to join our Solar United Neighbors of Texas network! We’ll notify you of our program launch and how you can get involved, while also helping you get to know our organization better. We hope you’ll join us in helping Texans capture the power of the sun!
