About

The Louisiana Solar Energy Society is a state-wide nonprofit organization based in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, dedicated to promoting and educating people about solar energy.

We are a chapter of the American Solar Energy Society, and have been in operation since 1999. We educate solar enthusiasts and professionals  at our monthly meetings in Baton Rouge, workshops, with our quarterly newsletters, participation in conferences, and help individuals like you get started with solar.

This past year, LSES hosted its 9th Annual Solar Tour of Homes on October 3rd, with seventeen solar locations all over the state open for the public to view and learn about.  We also hosted a Solar 101 Workshop in Baton Rouge that covered site analysis, calculating your needs, solar economics, and case studies. Our quarterly newsletter goes out to over 1,500 members.  It contains articles by the LSES state coordinator, solar industry workers and experts, and solar minded community members on topics such as energy efficiency, Louisiana solar legislation, and solar happenings in our state. Take a look at our FAQ’s for more information about LSES and solar.

If you are interested in staying up to date on these things, please consider becoming a member to support our continued efforts!

  • Matthew Newman works for GSREIA and Litesolar

  • Mr. Newman agreed to serve on the GSREIA board. He does not work for “Litesolar”. Lite Solar dissolved as a Louisiana corporation in July and he never worked there. He owns Optimize Solar.

  • I love Solar!!
