Education Programs

For years, Austin Utilities has been providing utility service to the community of Austin. As a part of these services, we have always been committed to helping our customers understand their utility. Austin Utilities offers a variety of programs and presentation that allow our customers – young and old – to learn more about the valuable resources we provide – electricity, natural gas and water.

Learn About Community Solar 
Solar is a hot topic in the utility world right now. For a variety of reasons from shady locations to shabby rooftops, a solar project doesn’t make sense for many homes and business. Community Solar can be a great alternative.

A community solar project—sometimes referred to as a solar garden or shared renewable energy plant—is a solar power plant whose electricity is shared by more than one household. Austin Utilities will be offering customers an opportunity to buy into a community solar project. Come to this workshop to understand more about community solar so you can decide if it’s right for you.
