PosiGen to deploy 12 solar power stations in South Louisiana


New Orleans Solar Company, PosiGen Solar, teamed up with the Footprint Project to deploy 12 solar power stations at Hurricane Ida’s disaster supply sites, the company announced today. As a result, South Louisiana communities could now benefit from solar power in their recovery efforts.

Indeed, a dozen firehouses, churches, and community centers left without power because of the storm will now have access to solar power; particularly, through lights, fans, refrigerators, and cell phone charging stations.

About the solar power stations

Accordingly, the 12 self-contained solar power stations include 30 solar panels that provide 11,400 watts of power. They also come along with an inverter and dual battery pack that provides up to 27,000 watt-hours of electricity.

Noteworthy, PosiGen Solar noted it has been working around the clock with the team from the Footprint Project to deploy these power stations across southeast Louisiana.

As Solar Power World reports, the installed PosiGen solar power stations in Louisiana are located in Houma, Golden Meadow, Avondale, Laplace, Lockport, Lockport, and Port Fourchon.

The benefitted facilities include fire and police stations, one Commissary, and church buildings. Additionally, PosiGen noted that with the Footprint Project, they will install more solar power stations by Sunday across Southeast Louisiana.

According to a Solar Power World report, “Hurricane Ida recovery volunteers credit the solar power stations with helping them bring their communities back to life.” Thus, Tiffany Theriot, interviewed by the media website and who runs the Cajun Commissary, commented on the aid.

“Having these solar power stations has truly transformed how we are able to help people,” Theriot says. “I’m truly at a loss for words. Because PosiGen and the Footprint Project are here providing us solar power, we can plug-in refrigerators to feed volunteers.”

PosiGen with a more holistic approach to energy

Moreover, Theriot noted that the community now has fans to cool people down and electricity to charge cell phones. Besides, the Commissary won’t have to worry about running out of gas.

“This gift of solar power truly changed how we operate, and we are so grateful to PosiGen and Footprint Project,” she added.

Similarly, says Tom Neyhart, PosiGen CEO, commented on the announcement; “As soon as we ensured our employees were safe, we turned our attention to helping people in these hardest-hit areas.”

Neyhart also noted that the company aims to help or at least lessen the damage to the surrounding communities. Accordingly, he pointed out how frustrating it is to know all the work the company could have done pre-storm.

Thus, Neyhart said Louisiana could have a more holistic approach to energy. PosiGen is therefore working now to install 300 solar power batteries at homes; particularly, in low-income neighborhoods.

“Everyone deserves the right to clean, renewable energy,” PosiGen’s CEO concluded.

Worth noting, the Footprint Project has worked to bring clean energy to areas of climate disasters and humanitarian emergencies since 2017.  Currently, volunteers on the ground in Southeast Louisiana say this is their largest response operation to date.
