New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell has announced Solar for All NOLA, a clean-energy initiative offering the financial and resiliency benefits of rooftop solar to all New Orleanians, US.
Solar for All NOLA will be led by the Greater New Orleans Housing Alliance (GNOHA), a non-profit that has been an advocate for affordable housing — including affordable energy bills — for New Orleans' most vulnerable working families and retirees. GNOHA will work with two local solar businesses — PosiGen Solar and Solar Alternatives — to provide free solar evaluations to all homeowners and small business owners interested in seeing if clean energy can save them money on their utility bills.
The program underscores Mayor Cantrell's commitment to reduce energy costs for lower-income families and those on fixed incomes, while creating quality jobs and making New Orleans more climate resilient.
Through PosiGen, Solar for All NOLA offers 100% of solar feasible homeowners a financing solution, with a no-money-down, no-credit requirement solar lease with energy-efficiency upgrades. Traditional financing is for eligible homeowners and small business owners who wish to purchase their system through Solar Alternatives. The unique accessibility of this campaign brings solar and energy efficiency to homeowners who are left out of traditional programs and who can benefit the most from energy savings.
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 utilise GNOHA staff to assist them with this service.
