Austin Energy has been a leader on renewable energy adoption, including distributed solar for many years. That’s both because of leadership at the utility and the Austin City Council and because of public demand for progressive energy policies.
That’s the beauty of having a democratically controlled electric utility – it’s responsive to the public. That benefit comes with the responsibility to stay engaged. And that’s a role we play at Solar Austin – helping people learn about the benefits of solar and then getting involved to continue improving local policies and programs to keep solar growing in the Austin area.
Solar Austin was involved in getting the solar rebate program started at Austin Energy and we’ve worked to ensure a steady budget for the solar programs over the years.
There are several potential changes to Austin solar policies and programs in the works. Join us to learn what we’re working on and how you can get involved.
