Solar Panels on the White House?

One of our favorite sites,, is reporting that a Solar Coaltion is calling on President Obama to install solar panels on the White House. Fun fact: Jimmy Carter installed solar panels on the White House roof in 1979. Fun Fact No. 2:  They were removed during Ronald Reagan’s administration in 1986.

As says, “The Obama Administration has been offering tax incentives, rebates and programs to help the American public rely more on renewable energy in the last year, including yesterday’s “Retrofit Ramp Up” announcement. It’s about time they heed their own advice and get some clean green power on the most prominent of their structures. Powering the White House on the sun would not only save the country just over $19,000 in utility bills each year, but it would provide the most fitting example for the rest of us to follow suit.”
