The White House (finally) goes solar

white House solar gridThe White House is on the solar grid, President Barack Obama will announce today -- nearly four years after then-Energy Secretary Steven Chu pledged that solar panels and a solar water heater would be installed on the White House roof.

The American-made panels are on the First Family's residence as part of Obama's "commitment to lead by example to increase the use of clean energy in the U.S.," said Matt Lehrich, a spokesman at the White House.

The announcement comes as Obama appears later today at a Wal Mart near San Francisco where he'll tout a raft of administration initiatives aimed at boosting the use of alternative energy.

The push comes as Obama sounds the alert on climate change -- a message that resounds with his liberal base, but faces opposition from congressional Republicans and is unnerving Senate Democrats facing reelection in conservative-leaning states.
