First Dog “Bo Obama” wants you to help put solar panels on the White House.

Ok, it’s not the real Bo, nor does he probably know what solar panels are, but this adorable look-alike is advocating for Sungevity’s campaign that will hopefully turn the 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. establishment into a sun-loving one, Earthtechling reports.

It was said in October 2010, the White House planned to install solar panels by the summer of 2011, but it’s never happened. Sungevity, a home solar company, put together its “Rooftop Revolution” project to change this.

As part of their initiative, Sungevity created the below video, where “Bo” and his friends show off his new solar panels atop his doghouse. They’re having such a good time with clean energy, and so should the Obama family, right?

The last time solar panels were on the White House’s roof was under the Carter administration for water heating. Unfortunately, they were removed for construction purposes in 1986, during Reagan’s term, and never again installed.

Before last fall’s election, ABC News inquired about the panels. This is the answer they received: “they are in the procurement phase.”

If you feel as passionate as Sungevity, head on over to its Tumblr page and sign the petition. Also, don’t forget to watch the video below and see “Bo” in action!
