 Keep solar energy affordable for Louisiana citizens

Keep solar energy affordable for Louisiana citizens

    1. Louisiana Solar Energy Society
    2. Petition by

      Louisiana Solar Energy Society

At the August 20, 2012, Louisiana Public Service Commission meeting, Commissioner Clyde Holloway proposed drastic changes in Louisiana’s solar energy incentive program. He proposed a $50 monthly fee for every net-metered solar customer. Meanwhile the Louisiana Department of Revenue has proposed that tax credits be scaled back by limiting the number of systems to one that can be claimed for a tax credit.


These new proposals would destroy the progress that the tax incentive has produced. The monthly charges would eliminate the financial benefits for Louisianans to invest in solar energy, and if consumers are unable to purchase multiple systems, energy savings will be decreased. More information can be found on Louisiana Solar Energy Society’s website at lses.org.

      Solar is the best way forward for our country. Keeping it affordable means the industry can continue to grown and move our nation towards energy independence

      We need to localize our power source, decrease our fossil fuel consumption and encourage the use of solar energy. The $50 net metering fee would greatly discourage this!
