About Tucson’s Solar Guild
The Solar Guild is made up of a board of students, professionals, educators and community members interested in all forms of solar energy. Incorporated in 2011, and initiated by a group of former students of the Pima Community college SLR 101 and 102 classes. The group wanted to help others learn about solar; bring together like minded people and create dialogue among community members.
TO INCREASE THE USE OF SOLAR ENERGY BY PROVIDING HANDS-ON TRAINING AND EXPERIENTIAL LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES FOR SOLAR GUILD MEMBERS IN THE CONTEXT OF INSTALLING SOLAR ENERGY SYSTEMS FOR COMMUNITY-BASED PROJECTS.
Solar Guild and Citizens for Solar
Citizens for Solar and Solar Guild have many common members and interests. Solar Guild is Citizens for Solar’s partner in numerous activities. We routinely participate together at local green events like Tucson Earth Day and Cyclovia, and and have worked together on solar oven design classes at Xerocraft, Tucson’s Makerspace/Hackerspace.
Solar Guild and Citizens for Solar have worked together on several community service projects. When Citizens for Solar is asked to do a solar installation, we rely of the expertise of Solar Guild to design the system. Members from both groups jointly do the installs under the supervision of Solar Guild experts, who ensure that the work is done properly and safely.
While the focus of each group is slightly different, both groups share the a common goal of promoting solar energy awareness and use.
