Solar Panels Are Back on the White House

LA Times: “After years of delay, solar panels have been installed on the first family’s residence at the White House.”

“Installation got underway in August. Now, in addition to the American-made panels, capable of 6.3 kilowatts of solar generation, the White House has other energy-saving equipment, including updated building controls and variable-speed fans.”

“The announcement was one of several coming on Friday as Obama interrupts a fundraising blitz in California to highlight his second-term push on the environment.”

The president is expected to announce a number of public/private partnerships focused on energy efficiency.
