All solar and wind energy installations must be performed by a contractor duly licensed by and in good standing with the Louisiana Contractors Licensing Board with a classification of "Solar Energy Equipment" and a certificate of training in the design and installation of solar energy systems from an industry recognized training entity, or a Louisiana technical college, or the owner of the residence.
Installers must have the appropriate license, as well as this specialty classification in order for systems to take advantage of state tax credits. Installers must be licensed with the Louisiana Contractors Licensing Board. This specialty classification does not substitute for an electrical or plumbing license; installers must have this specialty classification in addition to an electrical contractor's license (for solar photovoltaic installations) or a plumbing contractor's license (for solar thermal installations).
