Our commitment to you: COVID-19 update from TXSES Executive Director

Dear valued TXSES members and sponsors,

In these unprecedented times when things are changing around us at incredible speed, we believe kinship is more important than ever. Staying in touch, especially now, strengthens bonds with each other and deepens our connection with community.

Despite the disruption caused by COVID-19, TXSES will continue what we’ve done for more than four decades: develop quality materials to educate Texas communities and inform decision-makers on the critical importance of sound, favorable solar policies that will grow the industry; protect clean air; build healthy, resilient communities; support local, well-paying jobs; and lay the foundation for energy independence.

Observing good social distance practices, we’re exploring ways to expand our educational outreach that reflect current and future solar trends, challenges, and opportunities via webinars, social media, and video conference calls. Have ideas you want to share? Let us hear from you! Email me at pparsons@txses.org with your suggestions.

To stay connected, we’re aggressively increasing our social media presence. If you haven’t already, like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter. We’re also updating our website with current local, state, and national solar news and information.

We’ve rescheduled our renowned Cool House Tour to September 20, 2020. Find details about last year’s Tour here. We give profound thanks to Austin Energy’s Green Building Program for sponsoring the Tour for the past 24 years.

I want to extend heartfelt thanks for all you do to build a strong solar foundation and clean energy future for Texas, one community at a time. We stand together while apart.

Wishing health and safety for you and your loved ones.

Patrice ‘Pete’ Parsons
Executive Director
