White House to Add More Solar Panels

Obama Administration Becomes The Third To Install Solar Panels On White House Grounds
AUGUST 15, 2013 - The White House will soon be one of the newest — and certainly most high profile — home in D.C. with solar panels.

A White House official confirmed to the Washington Post Thursday that installation had begun on fitting the President’s residence with solar panels, an effort the official said was “part of an energy retrofit that will improve the overall energy efficiency of the building.” The panels will be American-made, though the official did not confirm which company they would be purchased from.

The Obama administration announced in Oct. 2010 that it would install 20 to 50 solar panels on the residence after a campaign headed by and solar company Sungevity urged the president, along with other world leaders, to add solar panels to government buildings. read more>>>
