Texas Solar Energy Society
West Texas Chapter
Eco El Paso is proud to represent the Texas Solar Energy Society (TXSES) as the newest chapter to represent El Paso and all of West Texas.
TXSES Mission: equitable access to solar energy for every Texan.
TXSES Vision: To educate and inspire every Texan to adopt solar energy as part of an equitable 100% clean energy future.
TXSES envisions a world where our children will grow up in a clean, safe climate, TXSES supports bold solutions to educate and inspire every Texan to adopt solar energy as part of an equitable, 100% clean energy future.
For more than four decades, TXSES has been the pre-eminent statewide organization developing free thought-leading, independent, fact-based educational materials that inspire innovation, share best practices 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 building a strong solar foundation for a 100% clean energy future for Texas, one community at a time.
A membership-based organization, TXSES’s unique niche is exemplified in our well-established local chapters in Austin, Dallas, Houston, San Antonio, and now El Paso as of 2020. Having boots on the ground in these major metropolitan cities, which represent nearly a quarter of Texas’s 29 million citizens, enables our gifted, dedicated experts to disseminate fact-based, relevant solar information.
