Community Outreach

Austin Energy is more than an electric utility. We are closely engaged with the community. We present a variety of outreach programs, and we participate in an average of 60 outreach events each year.

At community events we provide information about energy efficiency rebates and loans, renewable energy, Green Building, and other topics.

Community Programs

Our Community Outreach programs focus on education and electrical safety. We offer:

  • Speaker's Bureau — Have an Austin Energy expert talk to your group about a variety of energy-related topics. Just let us know what you are interested in and we’ll provide a knowledgeable speaker.
  • Facility Tours — Get an inside look at how electricity is produced and transmitted. Set up a group tour for adults or children 4th grade or older to visit Austin Energy natural gas or district cooling plants.
  • Solar Site Visits — We refer groups who want to visit a solar power facility to the Webberville Solar Farm outside Austin. Although we purchase all 30 megawatts of power from this facility, we do not own it, so you’ll need to register as a visitor on their website. Austin Energy may be able to facilitate a presentation during your visit. Email Austin Energy for more information.

Community Events

Each year, we participate in an average of 60 outreach events throughout our service area. We attend general community events or job fairs, as well as events organized by other City departments, homeowner or neighborhood associations, and professional associations.

We provide information about energy efficiency rebates and loans, renewable energy, and Green Building, among other topics.

Customer Assistance Program Events

The City of Austin Customer Assistance Program (CAP) sponsors an annual Community Connections Resource Fair to help bring together low-to-moderate income families with a variety of service providers in our service area.

Additionally, CAP hosts an annual Affordable Energy Summit that introduces local non-profit and state and local government agencies to our program benefits, residential rates, and bill options for customers.
