New Orleans Solar Power:
an electrifying home project
~P. Augustine Stelly
~Consider Collins Foots Sr., who lives in New Orleans' Lower 9th Ward, a neighborhood on the rise five years after Hurricane Katrina's flood waters receded. Foots' 1,200-square-foot home generates an electric bill of a frugal $38 per month, thanks largely to its PV system. "I'm saving about $150 a month on my electric bill and I'm practically getting free energy from the sun," he says. True, Foots had help. His home was built by Make It Right, the foundation funded by Brad Pitt to aid in the rebuilding of New Orleans. If you're footing the bill yourself, you'll want to do extensive reviews of several factors. Carefully consider the type of system you want, the costs, and what local, state and federal incentives there are to help defray costs.
