Solar Policy Environment: New Orleans

This document outlines the policies in place affecting solar deployment.

To use unprecedented rebuilding of the city of New Orleans is an opportunity for the Office of Recovery Management and its partners to encourage solar in New Orleans’ energy marketplace. While all Solar Cities grantees are undertaking market transformation activities that will both remove barriers to the adoption of solar technologies and reduce the cost of solar technologies, the reconstruction process affords New Orleans a window of opportunity to structurally alter the ways in which solar technologies are regulated, incentivized, produced, and consumed in the Greater New Orleans area.
