Tony Blair To Go Solar With New Renovations

snipshot_d41a1018re0e.jpgIf Tony Blair gets solar panels on his home before Al Gore, it’s going to real embarrassing. Gore’s options for solar tiles or panels kick in after April 1st; the agreed upon date by the community board for allowing such rooftop technology. The race will then be on. Blair, for his part, is conducting renovations  on his £3.65m townhouse in an area known as “Little Beirut”.

According to new reports, the Blairs are equipping their “retirement” home with a sun terrace and four solar panels. We’re not sure if this is a token nod to the politically-correct stance of “going green” or an actual desire to use renewable energy. Either way, it’s an encouraging visual statement for the rest of London to observe.

I’m always impressed with the relative size of politician’s homes in the UK compared to the sprawling mansions of their American counterparts. This isn’t to say that Blair is a model of frugal consumption; the guy owns five other homes scattered around the UK. Most, however, are of standard size and include flats and private dwellings, like his Myrobella home. It’s worth noting that even Bush’s 4,000 sq. ft. off-grid ranch is average in size compared to others.

For all the flak we give them, both Blair and Bush use solar energy to some degree with their residences. Policies aside, you can’t knock their personal dwellings. Hit the article for more on Blair’s renovation plans — also, MSNBC currently has a great interview article on Blair’s last days in office.
