Community Involvement

Technicians For Sustainability believes that living our mission involves being active in our local Tucson and southern Arizona community.  Please see our upcoming events list for where you can find us.

Pass the Sunshine!

We believe in what we do, and we know you do, too! Solar provides enormous benefits for the environment and your wallet, but it’s also great for our community. Do you know someone who is interested in going solar? Each time you send us a referral that results in a new TFS customer, we’ll make a $100 donation, in your name, to your favorite local non-profit (must be registered as a 501c3).

Do you have a referral? Pass the Sunshine by filling out our customer referral form.

Community Education

We believe that education is a means to a sustainable future and we are always willing to speak with local groups about sustainability, and solar power.  If you have a group who would be interested in a presentation, please contact us and we will see how we can help.  Also, check out our Solar Education Program to see what different talks we offer.

Community Sponsorships

We support a variety of non-profits that work toward making our community a better and more sustainable place through sponsorships, including El Grupo Cycling, Living Streets Alliance, Catalina Foothills School District Foundation, Bit Buckets, and Community Water Coalition.  Read more about each one on our Partners and Sponsorships page.

Solar Grant For Non-Profits

Technicians For Sustainability is pleased to have been able to offer an annual and some years, a twice a year grant for non-profit organizations who are interested in adding solar energy systems to their buildings.  We have offered both matching grants and full solar grants, for a total of seven awarded systems to date. Congratulations to our 2012 grant recipient, St. Monica’s Roman Catholic Church!
