"They were great. My point of contact was
and he was easy to get in touch with and quite helpful. The installation of panels in" a historic district can be a little bit daunting, but Joule was very helpful in working through the process. There were some holdups with getting Entergy to install a Net-Meter and Joule was very helpful in navigating that process and keeping me updated throughout. I would definitely (and have already) recommend them to a neighbor.

"The agent worked with me over the phone looking at the Google Earth imagery to get a sense if the general situation of the trees orientation and roof size. He was honeat with me that" the tree cover meant that solar wasnt a good option fir PVE. When I asked about a smaller system just for solar water heating he asked a few more questions and even though the system would fit and work he was again honest with me on the fibancial bemefit just not being there and the payback timeframe was not going to work out based on our estimated usage. What a refreshing experience to hear that they don't think I need their services instead of the hard sell. No service was performed obviously, and we ended up buyong a different house.

Leasing solar panels may sound like a nice way to get green energy into your home, but count the cost before you sign that lease instead of buying outright.

Angie's Answers


Are you talking about powering your home solely on solar (i.e. no back up power source or off grid).


The power, once convered from DC to AC via the inverter, is suitable for use by the home. 


Most solar application are in supplement to the current powering of the home and will spin the meter back in the day but are not the primary. 


OK - that should strike Atlantic Plumbing off your vendor list !

You say female pipe to copper pipe connection - I hope you are not saying they connected copper directly to galvanized or black iron pipe. If so, there should have been a dielectric union put in there to prevent corrosion, which could be part of your problem.

Also, generally a bad idea to use teflon tape for hot water tank connections - too much thermal cycling, loosens it up over time. Should use plumbers dope for that application.

It sounds to me like a connection problem - if the tank itself was leaking it should be flooding the top of the tank or more likely running down through the insulation and dripping out the bottom.

Unless you are a do it yourselfer, sounds like you need to find a new plumber with good reviews and rating in your area - Search the List (in green banner bar). This should be an easy fix - should have him put in dielectric couplings (about $5-10 each depending on pipe size) if current connection is iron to copper, and even if not, have him redo connection not only for cold but also hot water - if one was done poorly, probably both were.


Solar Panel Installation reviews in New Orleans


It went very fast and smooth. It took a couple of weeks to get someone to come out to explain how it works but it looks good and is working well. I found two panels that were broken. Not sure how or when it happened but I noticed it in the first couple of weeks. They came out and replace them free of charge.

The consulting from
New Orleans Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
(SCS) was very helpful. We likely will not go with solar for now because it doesn't make the best financial sense for us. However, their consultant was extremely helpful and forthcoming in providing an estimate and answering questions.
One drawback to getting estimates, especially in the U.S., is there are too many hucksters and people focused on making a sale at any expense. I've had terrible experiences in New Orleans, especially. Everyone acts like a seedy used car salesman, and you don't feel like you are getting an honest answer and explanation of costs, benefits, risks, etc. My experience with SCS was not like this in the least. Everyone was very professional and helpful.
If we do choose to go with residential solar it will undoubtedly be with SCS.

Everything went very well. We wanted to get everything before the end of the year and they were prompt and efficient. They finished everything by our deadline. Very happy. It is expensive but the lower electric bill is worth it.

Decided to add solar last November - looked at all the top rated folks on Angie's List and invited 4 to look at my house.
New Orleans Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
responded promptly and did a thorough job of reviewing my situation - getting up on the roof to find suitable places for panels. (Not a single one of the other companies went on the roof at this early stage of the process).
We have an unusual house, it started as a modest house that grew thru multiple flat roof additions - the roof line is complex.
New Orleans Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
was willing to work with our situation.
To solve a leak problem on a flat roof, where pitched met flat, we decided to just foam over the whole thing.
New Orleans Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
installed the brackets on the pitched roof, oversized to allow foaming, then waited for foaming to be done by another contractor, then installed the rails and solar panels.
An incidental benefit of our unusual leak fix approach (spraying closed cell foam on top of shingles) was that the roof is bright white and reflective - increasing the amount of solar energy reaching the cells. I was concerned about saturation of the cells.
New Orleans Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
sent info showing that the microinverters they supply are the most cost effective way to maximize solar output per $, but in my special situation, worked with me to put in slightly larger microinverters due to my wish to take advantage of the "turbo" effect of reflective white surfaces near the cells. I had to pay more for the larger microinverters (a reasonable amount).
New Orleans Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
was thorough in their review of my situation, responded in depth to my questions and concerns, and flexible in implementing the best solution. The install was drawn out some, to get special brackets and to deal w/ roof foaming - other than these delays to accommodate me they were prompt. I raved so much about them my brother had them put solar panels on his house a month later.
Like the Enphase monitoring of the panels - included with their system. We're roughly in balance lately on energy - will probably accumulate credits thru June, then consume more than we create thru the summer. Like the comprehensive guarantee on the whole system, but hope we won't have to use it.
Only glitch has been monitoring of the system (Enphase) has been down at times due to problems w/ our household wireless routers - this is not

's fault, but it can be disconcerting. Fortunately the system is still generating power and working as intended when Enphase is shut down - sort of like your car still works and can be used even if the speedometer is broken.
New Orleans Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
offered to send folks by to look at the system, but I figured out what was causing the problem and didn't need their assistance.
Every person was courteous and polite and did their job well - from estimator to installers. The installers went to some pains to put the panels in the best locations - minimizing shading from various vent pipes on the roof, so the array is not just

rectangles - it's optimum for solar, which is all that counts, as the pitched roof can't be seen from the ground.

I'd recommend
New Orleans Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
and his team at
New Orleans Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
without hesitation to anyone that wants to install solar for their homes. LA has amazing tax credits and consequently there are many solar providers to choose from, and it's difficult to know what the exact differences are between the choices. I used Angie's List and I wholeheartedly agree with the other reviews that
New Orleans Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
is extremely efficient, professional and are actually willing to work with you to provide the right solution.
Our case is probably at the extreme of what
New Orleans Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
usually sees - we live in a historic district and needed to obtain approval from the Historic Districts and Landmarks Commission (HDLC) to install our system. We did not get approval the first several times, because of the concerns of visibility. Over three or four months of delays and hearings,
New Orleans Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
was always willing to keep me updated, and most importantly, never gave up! Upon appeal the City Council ended up approving the installation. And despite getting approval to install the original system,
New Orleans Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
worked with me to come up with an installation that is more or less camouflaged by our roof, to allay any future concerns.
I only have one solar system, so I can't really compare the service I've gotten with another install. But, with a history of extensive renovations to our home,
New Orleans Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
has really stood out with their professionalism and efficiency.

I am very pleased with my Joule experience from beginning to end! My first contact was from a very sweet and polite street outreach worker for Joule. She approached me as I was sitting on my porch. She did not know that I (like many of my friends) had done quite a bit of research on both solar and local companies prior to meeting her. I happily gave her my information and was contacted within the week. The sales person -

- set a convenient time to come out and talk to me about renting a system.
Upon receiving more information I decided to purchase my system - Louisiana has great solar rebates right now. The solar engineer (there is a more technical name that I don't remember) and the installation team could not have been more courteous and professional. They kept in contact with me if/when there were any issues. They worked right up until a downpour ended their first day, and were back the next day to finish the job. They cleaned up everything and showed me how to turn my system on (once the City inspected and Entergy changed out the meter).
Joule's team did an excellent job planning my system - even down to the placement of the panels. Many of my friends and neighbors didn't even realize that I now have a system until I (voluntarily) put the sign out on my lawn.
Again, pleased with service from beginning to end. I highly recommend Joule.
