Louisiana’s Limit on Local Power is going to kill our future of renewable energy. Louisiana has gone from the solar envy of other states with our “best in the nation” 50% refundable solar tax credit to the “nearly worst in the nation” .5% Net Metering Cap. A Net Metering Cap means that if you take all of the solar power systems connected to a utility and add up their MAXIMUM RATED OUTPUT POWER of the solar panels, it can only add up to 1/2 of one percent of the generation capacity of that utility.
Look at a graphic to see how bad we look.
Lets put an end to this embarrassment, which is politically motivated, rather than technically required.
