Technicians have finished installing solar panels on the White House roof, capping a project that President Barack Obama hopes will send a signal that renewable energy is feasible and environmentally shrewd.
Flanked by bargain-priced displays of women’s wear and patio lighting, President Barack Obama came to a Wal-Mart store in Silicon Valley on Friday to praise new steps by businesses and communities to deploy solar energy, showcasing efforts to combat climate change that don’t rely on a disinclined Congress.
Going solar can mean a huge cost savings on your energy bill. Couple that with the frequent and sometimes long-lasting power outages that the DC area has experienced in recent years and more homes than ever are switching to solar. Here are a few places to get your panels installed.

Emails between an independent consultant and the Obama administration suggest the consultant felt pressure to help arrange a loan guarantee for a Colorado solar panel manufacturer that later went bankrupt.
As an innovative city, Washington, D.C. has the necessary resources to make any home energy efficient.
