10 minutes with Max Bacque
Maximillian “Max” Bacque
Position at SCS:
Solar Energy Consultant
Lafayette, LA: born and raised. After several years spent in New Orleans and abroad, Max is now living, working, and giving back in the same community that helped shape him.
Starting with his studies of Environmental Engineering at Tulane University in 2002, Max has quickly built experience with all aspects of environmental responsibility and energy efficiency. From working in the environmental labs of the Army Corps of Engineers to assisting with environmental law at a Lafayette law firm, Max’s background is firmly rooted in the newly popular “Green” industries. His most recent accomplishment includes Professional Accreditation from the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Program.
Why South Coast Solar?
After thoroughly researching several contractors in several renewable energy fields, Max found solar energy the most promising, and South Coast Solar as the only Louisiana solar provider with both the highest quality systems and unmatched attention to aesthetic detail.

How he gives back to the community:
Aside from attending the many Charity dinners and concerts in his area, Max feels it important to spend as much time as possible sharing the valuable environment and energy-related education he has gained through the years. From guest-lecturing at local elementary schools, to instructing professional LEED training seminars, Max has made it his goal to reverse much of the misinformation the general public receives regarding our planet and how to best live within it.
Hobbies and Interests:
In his free time, Max enjoys crawfish boils, fishy fry’s, backyard barb-b-ques, cochon-de-laits’, wild game gumbos, pot luck dinners, bake sales, and any other excuse under the Sun to gather with family and friends to pass a good time. He loves showing off his adorable white german shepherd at local parks, and can sometimes be spotted two-stepping at many of Acadiana’s outdoor festivals. Like any other good Cajun, Max just likes to cook, eat, drink, and dance with a big ‘ole smile on his face.
