South Coast Solar

South Coast Solar has been serving clients since 2007. After outgrowing our original location in the New Orleans CBD we moved to our present headquarters in Metairie, LA. South Coast Solar is locally owned by lifelong New Orleanians and is Licensed, Bonded, and Insured to perform Electrical and Solar Energy work.

At SCS we believe in Solar Energy and the promise it brings of a clean energy revolution for our state. We practice what we preach and we power our headquarters and many of our homes with solar energy so we understand the benefits first hand. We feel that with the help of the Louisiana solar tax credit and current trends in more traditional energy sectors that Louisiana is well positioned to take part in the economic benefits of the transition to cleaner energy sources.

The tremendous growth we have experienced since our beginnings has enabled us to grow into a regional company and we are pleased to say that along with over 600 residential, commercial, and governmental installations in Louisiana we have performed more work out of state than any other solar contractor. We feel that it is our duty as a company that has benefited from these generous incentives to go outside the state and bring home additional business to Louisiana.

South Coast Solar has played a leading role in the industry from day one. We helped draft the original rules for the solar tax credit and played a major role with the Louisiana Legislature to update the laws in order to address problems that were arising in the industry. We will continue these efforts to make sure that the efforts of our lawmakers result in the creation of a sustainable industry that competes globally for years to come.

We believe that the key to success is in our employees. We invest in our people, providing top-notch benefits for them and their families. All of our employees are factory trained and many hold nationally recognized certifications along with our in and out-of-state licensure.

Some of our key achievements include solar installations at Falstaff Brewery, Make It Right, Fort Polk, Baton Rouge Public Works, New Orleans Public Schools including the structure at Martin Luther King School in the 9th Ward, Chalmette Battlefield, and Southeastern University to name a few.

We look forward to serving you!

What kind of credits can I get for a solar installation?

Your federal tax credit is 30% through 2016.  For your state tax credit see http://dsireusa.org/ In Louisiana you can get 30% plus 50% on a system that costs $25,000, so you would get $20,000 here!
