City Announces Solar Energy Program
NEW ORLEANS — Mayor LaToya Cantrell announced Solar for All NOLA, a clean-energy initiative available to all New Orleans homeowners and small businesses aimed at lowering energy costs while creating quality jobs and making New Orleans more climate resilient.
“We are committed to building stronger and sustainable green infrastructure for our city — especially for our homeowners and small-business owners, in particular our most vulnerable residents,” said Mayor Cantrell. “This effort gives families and people in our city the chance to do the right thing for the environment, the right thing for their household budget, and it puts New Orleans at the forefront of smart, creative, clean energy.”
Solar for All NOLA will be led by the Greater New Orleans Housing Alliance (GNOHA), a local affordable housing nonprofit. GNOHA will work with two local solar businesses — PosiGen Solar and Solar Alternatives — to provide free solar evaluations to all homeowners and small business.
Solar for All NOLA offers 100 percent of solar-feasible homeowners either a no-money-down lease or traditional financing for a purchase.
“Energy costs are a huge burden for homeowners already struggling to pay their bills,” said Andreanecia Morris, executive director of GNOHA. “We are excited about this program because it puts homeowners in control of their energy costs.”
Solar for All NOLA has launched a year-long campaign in 2020. Interested customers will be able to contact the PosiGen and Solar Alternative teams directly to sign up for a no-cost solar home or business assessment, or they can ask GNOHA staff to assist them with this service.
