Mission: Solar San Antonio is a cutting edge non-profit 501(c)(3) organization making solar energy a major contributor to the creation of the new energy economy. Solar San Antonio connects the private and public sectors through education, innovative marketing, and creative financing programs. Solar San Antonio provides direct assistance to homeowners and businesses ready to "go solar."
Programs: The organization has worked together with citizens, government, business, and private and public educational groups creating positive relationships to solve energy issues, decrease energy costs and increase our quality of life. In addition the organization sponsors a solarfest workshop which provides valuable information to the public about renewable energy technologies, the impact of sustainable living, and green building techniques.
bring solar home is a program to encourage local solar commitments and educate the community on the benefits of solar energy. Solar san antonio is working with cps energy, solar installers, and financial institutions to simplify the process of "going solar".
I am the president of our local Electric Auto Association chapter and our groups have been working with each other for years. Electric cars and solar power are a perfect match and Solar San Antonio has supported us by allowing us to display vehicles at the annual Solar Fest and the Solar House Tours. These events have become "must attends" every year with great food, music and the community coming together to learn about renewable energy. Solar San Antonio has not only put San Antonio on the map as a Solar City but they have created a model for the nation to follow. They have boosted the sales of solar installations on homes with their Bring Solar Home program and they have created the foundation for world class utility scale projects in San Antonio. After decades of relentless service by Bill Sinkin, Lanny Sinkin is not only continuing the efforts of Solar San Antonio but pushing the organization further to help transition our world to clean renewable energy.
