to Summary by DSIRE
In June 2010, Louisiana enacted solar rights legislation (HB 751) that prohibits certain entities from unreasonably restricting a property owner from installing a solar collector. Solar collectors are generally defined to include photovoltaics (PV), solar water heating, and any other system or device that uses sunlight as an energy source. While this law generally guarantees a property owner's right to install solar collectors, there are some exceptions to the law. For example, historic districts, historical preservation areas, and landmarks designated by a local governing authority are excluded from this solar rights law.
