Solar panels for the White House
Nothing would set a better eco-conscious example to the people of the United States than the White House going solar powered itself. And that’s exactly what companies are trying to convince the White House to do. So much, that these companies are even offering these panels for free, not that the White House can’t afford a whole array of them.
President Jimmy Carter had taken a green step in 1979 had installed some of these soak-in-the-sun devices, which were stripped off in 1986. A 17.85 kilowatt solar array can help the White House reduce its bills by a sweet 81%. That’s about $1,610 per month. 102 solar panels, each generating 175 watts on the roof of the White House will help offset carbon emissions that equal 1.5 million cars annually. Looks like it’s about time for the White House to add a shade of green to its roofs!
