Our Mission: The Louisiana Solar Energy Society (LSES) is a state-wide nonprofit and nonpartisan organization based in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, dedicated to promoting and educating people about solar energy.

Who We Are: We are a chapter of the American Solar Energy Society and have been serving Louisiana since 1999. We educate solar enthusiasts and professionals  at our monthly meetings in Baton Rouge, at workshops, with our quarterly newsletters, and through participation in conferences and workshops.

What We Do: LSES hosts monthly meetings, solar tours, Solar 101 Workshops, and fundraising activities like the InstArtBR Show.  We provide a quarterly newsletter and participate in community events like Earth Day and Green Crawl. LSES also promulgates information about solar news and policy as well as solar power in general.

How You Can Help: Please consider becoming a supporter of LSES both financially and with your involvement in upcoming events.  LSES subsists solely on the donation of money, time, and resources from volunteers and members.  Check out the pages “Get Involved” and “Join/Donate” to see what you can do.

Installers – Become a LA Solar Pro, and be screened as one of an elite group of solar professionals in Louisiana meeting all requirements as a statewide, top-tier installer.

New Solar Homeowners – If you purchased a system between 1/1/15 and 7/1/15 please watch for news concerning threats to your tax credit.  You will be required to show a signed contract to prove your credit.  The Louisiana solar tax credit money will be issued on a first come, first served basis.

If your system was installed after 7/1/15, please note that your credit amount decreased.  See more info on this.  Also, your installer should have made you aware of the new law that does not guaranty your tax credit anymore.  It will be on a first come, first served basis next year when returns are filed.
