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 meetings in Baton Rouge, at workshops, with our newsletters, and through participation in conferences and workshops.

What We Do: LSES hosts meetings, solar tours, workshops, and fundraising activities.  We provide newsletters and participate in community events like Earth Day and Green Crawl. LSES also shares 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.

Solar Homeowners – If you purchased a system between 1/1/15 and 7/1/15 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.  That ran out quickly and refunded credits are now being handled on a case by case basis.  Stay in contact with the LDR concerning your case.

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.

2017 – count on the 30% federal tax credit to lower the cost of your solar power system, with NO LIMIT to the size of it.
