In an effort to encourage a bold statement from the White House, solar company Sungevity sent a letter to the Obama administration and the Department of the Interior offering to install a 100% donated solar power system. If accepted, Sungevity says President Obama would be telling the American public that “clean energy works, saves money, creates jobs, and is something ‘I want for my home.’”
If the President isn’t comfortable accepting the donation, Sungevity is offering a lease plan for the $107,900 system at $537 per month.
Sungevity claims that its 17.85 kW STC Solar System would reduce the White House’s electricity bill by 81% saving an estimated $1,610 per month.
To encourage the White House to accept the offer, Sungevity is calling on the public to sign a Globama petition which will be shared with the administration once it reaches 10,000 signatures.
