White House Turns Green With Solar

Date: 5 Oct 2010

Solar energy is getting a presidential endorsement as Barack Obama agrees to install solar panels on the White House. The PV and thermal array will provide some free hot water and free electricity in what’s being called a “symbolic” move by environmentalists.

“Solar is available, reliable and ready to install” government officials have told an energy conference in Washington.They want to convey to the entire world that if it’s good enough for the White House, it’s good enough for your house! Global warming activists agree, “they're a powerful symbol…about where the future lies."

Remember, though in the UK you get more benefits than Obama because of the Feed In Tariff. You’ll make money from your installation on every single unit of electricity you generate. Visit our Feed in Tariff page to find out more.
