There are two solar tours in Texas on the immediate horizon. TXSES and Solar Austin collaborate with Bluebonnet Electric Coop for the Bluebonnet Solar Day, Sept. 14 in Brenham.  North Texas Renewable Energy Group hosts their 10th DFW Solar Tour (third largest solar tour in the country) Oct. 5. Both of these events are part of the ASES National Solar Tour, the largest grassroots solar event in the nation!

TXSES members will soon be eligible to join the Clean Energy Credit Union. This is a great opportunity to open a federally insured savings account devoted to helping others adopt clean energy. Make your money support your values.

Visit our calendar for solar tours, local chapter meetings and events.
