We thought this was an interesting piece recently posted in Renewable Energy World: A group of solar installation companies and advocacy organizations have come together to offer a $107,000 PV solar system to the white house in an effort to prove that the U.S. is serious about developing renewable energy technology.
The white house first installed solar panels in 1979, when Jimmy Carter put in a large solar hot water system, but these were famously removed by Ronald Reagan in 1986 when they were discovered to have a leak. If anything, we hope the publicity created by this movement will draw attention to the plight of solar in any federal legislation that gets passed!
Here is a link to the full article on the movement to put solar on the White House.
