Energy efficiency resources for homeowners and tenants in Louisiana
Energy Smart: New Orleans
This program offers information on AC Tune ups, appliance selection, light bulbs, and a listing of certified contractors. Rebates are also available if you get a home energy audit and use a participating contractor. Energy Smart is a program developed by the New Orleans City Council and administered by Entergy New Orleans for Orleans Parish residents.
Start with an audit from an Energy Smart auditor, then qualify for rebates by using a qualified contractor. Or, if the rebates aren't high enough, do some of the simple weatherization yourself.
By leasing, instead of buying panels, residential consumers can avoid repair and maintenance costs, and many times pay less or the same as you're paying now for energy. Our programs are sponsored by Posigen who does solar leasing.
Use The Alliance for Affordable Energy's checklist to do due diligence before leasing solar panels.
