NEW ORLEANS – Entergy New Orleans is piloting a new program that puts solar panels on the rooftops of low-income customers’ homes and gives them a $30 credit on their energy bills every month, rain or shine. Details were shared in a press release.

The Residential Rooftop Solar Program is a simple and straightforward way for New Orleans customers in need to participate in the benefits of distributed renewable energy by allowing the company to install utility owned and operated panels on their homes with no complicated leases or upfront cash.

“This program is as important as it is innovative for a sustainable energy future for New Orleans,” said David Ellis, president and CEO of Entergy New Orleans. “We want to thank our customers for coming along on this journey with us as we continue to build the utility of the future.”

Through partnership with local vendors, Entergy New Orleans will:
• install the rooftop solar system at no cost to customers.
• stand behind the installation quality and provide all system maintenance.
• educate customers on the benefits of the program and how the system operates.
• remove the system with a 90-day notice at any point.

This video describes the program and features the first customer who received his residential rooftop solar system in December 2018. The company is working with low-income advocates to sign up other customers in need around the city. Interested customers also can send an email to residentialsolar@entergy.com.
