Solar panels are back at the White House!

“Thirty years after President Carter’s solar equipment was ripped from the White House roof, today’s announcement signifies that America is coming back on the field. Let’s put solar not just on the White House but on every house.” That was the quote from Denis Hayes our chair emeritus.

“With the upcoming installation of solar panels on the White House, the Obama Administration is making good on a commitment to develop clean renewable energy.  This announcement comes directly after Obama’s weekly address, on the creation of a clean energy economy.  This initiative will create thousands of jobs in energy efficiency, clean transportation, and wind and solar power.  It will double the amount of renewable energy in the US.”
