Welcome to Bring Solar Home!

Bring Solar Home is a Build San Antonio Green program designed to help you discover if solar generation is right for you, and if so which program is the best fit. We are working with CPS Energy, solar installers, and financial institutions to simplify the process of “going solar” by bridging the gap between consumers and industry professionals.

Build San Antonio Green is a 501(C)(3) that works with builders and developers to certify green homes in San Antonio. Our Goal is to create awareness and interest among the builders and the homeowners in resource-efficient building methods, materials, and technologies. We do this primarily through our program and the certification of homes as green. We also educate home owners and buyers so they can make informed choices to reduce energy and water consumption and work with our Partners to create programs for air quality improvement, water conservation, energy efficiency and renewable energy.

Build San Antonio Green was founded by Bill Sinkin in 2001. Build San Antonio Green manages a nationally award winning residential green certification program that has certified over 5100 projects to date resulting in 9.72 MW of Peak Demand Reduction and 63 million lbs of CO2 to be saved since it’s inception 14 years ago.

Our Mission is to protect and enhance the quality of life of the citizens of the metropolitan San Antonio Area by developing standards by which to certify newly constructed and existing structures to green standards, and to provide leadership, expertise, and education for the wise, efficient, and sustainable use of energy and resources.

As of July 2015 we are excited to have officially merged with our sister organization, Solar San Antonio. Founded in 1999 by William Bill Sinkin, Solar San Antonio has served as a champion for Solar and Renewable Energy usage here in San Antonio as well as a public resource for information about solar technology. To date Solar San Antonio has helped to facilitate the installation of 1.78 MW of Solar PV systems through the Bring Solar Home Program.

The Texas Solar Energy Society is proud to include Build San Antonio Green and their Bring Solar Home program as one of their state chapters. TXSES has been promoting the adoption of solar across Texas, on homes businesses and in the community, since 1976. Please consider a modest donation. Memberships start at $25.
