An Opinion on Louisiana and Solar Energy
By Ondina Canales, special to Overdrive
Louisiana homeowners are benefiting from the state’s generous tax credits for renewable energy systems. The Louisiana Department of Revenue approved approximately US$12M in tax returns for residential solar energy projects in the 2011 tax season. Federal credits created under the Obama Administration’s American Recovery and Reinvestment Act have made it possible for homeowners in demand of solar energy solutions to receive up to 30% of the
cost of the system.
