Solar Permitting

To obtain rooftop solar, interested households must first reach out to solar company, or consider reaching out through our Solar for All NOLA program for a free site evaluation. Once an evaluation has been done, the solar developer will determine whether the house can feasibly support a solar and/or battery system. Permits for rooftop solar are classified as Non-Structural Renovation permits through the City’s Safety & Permit Department – the cost of the Non-Structural Renovation is $60 plus $5 per $1,000 of work to be performed. More information can be found on the Safety & Permits Website and on Entergy New Orleans website on Net-Metering and Distributed Energy Resources Programs
