Join us on November 17th to celebrate the solar installation and grand opening of the East-Knight House Park and Resiliency Center, Solar Austin’s most recent Community Installation project in East Austin!

Making a Difference:

Solar Austin’s commitment to advance sustainability, equity, and climate resilience in our community is coming to life through our Community Donated Solar Installation Program (Community Installs). Our initiative focuses on installing rooftop solar arrays and battery storage systems in low-income neighborhoods, creating resiliency centers that provide reliable access to clean energy during grid emergencies. These centers also serve as educational hubs, raising climate change awareness in vulnerable communities. We’ve also integrated our Pathways to Clean Energy Program, which provides workforce development opportunities for Opportunity Youth in the clean energy sector.

We have partnered with The Guadalupe Neighborhood Development Corporation (GNDC), a non-profit housing developer that provides affordable rental and homeownership opportunities to households with generational ties to East Austin. Check out their work here: https://www.guadalupendc.org/

This project was made possible thanks to Greentech Renewables, Lighthouse Solarand Longhorn Solar. They generously volunteer their time, labor, and materials to install the donated solar for the resiliency center. This project and the brand new park at GNDC is generously funded by a grant from Wells Fargo. The solar installation is also generously funded by a grant from Wells Fargo and is coordinated in partnership with Austin Energy and the City of Austin Office of Resilience.

The Celebration: Solar Austin and GNDC are hosting a special celebration party on November 17th where you can meet the faces behind the installations, connect with the communities we serve, and learn more about the impact we’re making, all at GNDC’s new community park! It’s an opportunity to come together with food and drinks, enjoy networking and live music from Soulman Sam and His Band, and support a vital cause.

Event Highlights:

— Solar Success Stories: Hear from community members and sustainability partners about the impact of our installations.

— Live Music and Entertainment from Soulman Sam and his Band
