I haven't seen any photos yet, but supposedly workers are atop the building this week, installing the panels.
A lot happens in America every four minutes. During that short time period, 30 babies are born, 4,080 McDonald's Big Macs are consumed, and 48,000 tons of CO2 are emitted.
In a bid to increase the building's energy efficiency, the White House will be outfitted with solar panels beginning this week, a White House official said Friday. The installation will mark the realization of a pledge made by President Obama nearly three years ago.
Washington, DC – SEIA President and CEO Rhone Resch issued the following statement today after learning the White House has begun installing solar panels “to improve overall energy efficiency” of America’s most famous building:
Michael Peck still finds it amazing that a tiny area smack in the middle of rural northwest Ohio can have such a large solar footprint.
Granted, since last February, the city of Napoleon has been home to a solar panel-making operation headed by Mr. Peck, chairman of Isofoton North America Inc., an offspring of Spanish solar panel Isofoton.
The United States installed more solar panels in 2012 than in any previous year, according to a new report, with residential use of solar power up 70 percent over 2011.

The solar industry continues to gather steam in Colorado, even as many subsidies have been changed or reduced.
Renewable energy could fully power a large electric grid 99.9 percent of the time by 2030 at costs comparable to today's electricity expenses, according to new research by the University of Delaware and Delaware Technical Community College.
